Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT)

QLT Instrument

The QLT evaluation rubric is designed to help faculty evaluate their online courses and to implement changes to facilitate learning. Faculty can complete self-evaluations or request peer-evaluations.

There are three main ways to utilize the QLT rubric and resources:
  1. Self-review: no formal support, but Academic Technologies (ATEC) is available to help!
  2. Local review through a team of certified reviewers.
  3. Formal course review for Exemplary Online Instruction (EOI)(opens in new window) recognition and/or CSU certification(opens in new window).

  • Course Overview and Introduction

  • Student Interaction and Community
  • Facilitation and Instruction
  • Technology for Teaching and Learning
