The Quality Matters Annual conference is presently in Session, and while we at PSA are not attending, we can see what is up in the world of quality design for online courses.
Experts will address competency-based education (CBE), including the universal design principles
quality programs share. The panel will discuss key features of various institutional models and approaches to
program design, instructional technology and delivery, pedagogy, and faculty roles. A policy expert
will update participants on competency-based education-related federal regulation and policy
including the HEA Reauthorization, Experimental Sites, and financial aid.
Of interest to PSA, we can access the app if we have registered for the actual conference. If we were at the conference we could participate in a scavenger hunt using Twitter to report back. Good to see elements of gamification is included in the conference.
