The QM certification is a testament to the quality work and commitment to student success that Dr. Julianne Treme has applied to ARE 201 (Introduction to Agricultural and Resource Economics) through course design and teaching.
Quality Matters, a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer-review process that certifies the quality of online courses, has recognized ARE 201 for its fulfillment of Quality Matters Standards. Dr. Marne Coit completed this certification last semester and Dr. Melissa Hendrickson is enrolled in the next cohort which shows ARE’s commitment to excellence in online teaching.
Quality Matters has developed a widely respected set of standards for the design of effective online courses and a rigorous, faculty peer review process for applying these standards to existing courses. Through this process, reviewers provide instructors and instructional design teams with insights and recommendations that increase learner engagement, retention and satisfaction, and, ultimately, learner achievement.
The QM program at NC State is a rigorous professional development program in which instructors collaborate with colleagues and DELTA staff to learn about the QM Higher Education Standards and apply them to online courses. Julianne participated in the Online Course Improvement Program last semester and has now met all requirements for certification.
Congratulations on achieving this important milestone, Julianne!
