Process Overview

Chico State has a variety of tools, resources, and assistance to aid faculty improve the quality of their online courses. Many of these resources are readily available on this web page or via TLP, ITSS(opens in new window), and ARC(opens in new window).

Faculty may use the QA/QLT tools (including the QLT repository and rubric) for self-evaluation and course improvements. However, sometimes faculty are looking for extra support to aid and/or fund their course redesign or improvements. Faculty accepted into Chico State’s Quality Assurance/QLT program receive help from: TLP, the QLT faculty lead and/or faculty mentor. There is a local/system-wide course review. Faculty will also receive professional development funds as available.
