Quality Matters Peer Reviewers

Quality Matters is a faculty-driven, peer review process used to ensure the quality of online and blended course design. The three primary components of the Quality Matters program are: the QM rubric, the QM peer review process, and QM professional development opportunities.

QM reviews are conducted in alignment with institutional goals. There are three types of QM reviews: self review, where one reviews one’s own course; informal review, an unofficial course review managed by UT; and, official review, where courses are recognized by QM upon meeting QM course review standards.

In official reviews, each review team consists of three certified QM peer reviewers. The team includes a team chair, a subject matter expert, and an external reviewer. The team decides whether to send the course to QM for certification based on the determination that evidence provided by the course developer submitting the course meets QM standards.  If revisions are necessary, the team provides constructive, specific, balanced, sensitive, and measurable recommendations for course developers to adopt in the revision of their courses.

As of August 2016, 25 faculty and staff have completed the Peer Reviewer Course; 19 have completed their role applications to become QM Certified Peer Reviewers. Throughout the year, UT Online awards professional development grants to cover the $200 course registration fee so that experienced online instructors can obtain Peer Reviewer Certification. Upon certification, the Peer Reviewer can serve on official QM review teams. If you are interested in becoming a QM Certified Peer Reviewer, please contact Rachel Bares, Instructional Design and Coordinator for Quality Assurance, at Rachel.Barnes@utoledo.edu
