TEI – Quality by Design – Are students struggling in your courses? Are you finding it difficult to keep students engaged? One place to start is with the design of your course. The new TEI course, Quality by Design, will help you design better courses. Quality by Design (QbD) provides a unique opportunity for faculty to improve courses through a framework for evaluating the effectiveness of seated, online, or hybrid courses.  QbD focuses on four major topics that are a key component of any quality designed course, including:

  • Learner Support
  • Content Presentation & Accessibility
  • Interaction & Collaboration
  • Evaluation & Assessment

This course is intended for all faculty at all levels of experience with an interest in effective teaching and quality course design strategies.
