Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT)

QLT Workshops

The Office of Faculty Development(opens in new window) is partnering with the Technology & Learning Program(opens in new window) to offer a series of workshops designed around the Quality Learning and Teaching instrument(opens in new window).

The five workshops below are designed to meet core standards in the QLT instrument and are associated with deliverables that will allow you to fully redesign a course (or design a new course), with an attention to backwards design, student engagement, authentic assessment, inclusion and accessibility, and more. While focusing on online learning, QLT provides a framework that is applicable to all modes of instruction. We encourage faculty to take the workshops in this sequence, but it is not necessary to attend the workshops in this order.  

All workshops are offered on Wednesday afternoons, 3:30-5:00 p.m., via Zoom(opens in new window).
