As many of you know Quality Matters released an update to their rubric on August 1. There is a free rubric update course which focuses on the differences between the 2011-2013 Rubric and the Fifth Edition 2014 Rubric. This is a short course which take approximately 3 hours to complete. You can register for this course through your My QM account. To do so, login to My QM, choose the Higher Education tab, select Workshop – Register, then select Register for Rubric Update.
If you hold a role with Quality Matters (e.g. Peer Reviewer, Master Reviewer, or Certified Facilitator), you are required to complete the Rubric Update by November 14, 2014 to maintain your role. It is recommended that everyone complete the Rubric Update to stay current. I’ll be contacting those individuals who might wish to make sure their roles remain active.
If you have a course that has been certified through Quality Matters using the 2011-13 Rubric, your course will retain the certification for five years (under the 2011-13 rubric).
Let Mary Jo Carnot (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested in the Rubric Update Course, and need assistance with registration.
In addition to the new rubric, two individuals at Chadron State earned course certifications last year. When you see them, be sure to congratulate Nathanial Gallegos (MGMT 639-79 – Legal and Social Environment of Business) and Kerma Crouse (HPER 233-79 – Personal Health and Wellness).
