A paper written by University of North Georgia’s (UNG) distance education & technology integration (DETI) faculty was selected as one of the three Best Paper Awards for the Distant Learning Administration (DLA) 2016 Conference.
The award winning paper titled "Status Tracking and Reporting of the Quality Matters Process at UNG," was co-authored by Dr. Nina Lamson, assistant director of DETI and Quality Matters (QM) coordinator at UNG’s Oconee Campus; David Babb, assistant director of DETI, QM coordinator and master reviewer at UNG’s Dahlonega Campus; and Robert Schmidt, instructional designer and QM coordinator at UNG’s Gainesville Campus.
The paper explains how UNG utilizes the internal QM process to review all their online courses.
"As our online course offerings have increased, the need to devise a system to track the QM process, ensure timely reviews, and begin recertification of previously reviewed courses was necessary," Lamson said. "As a result, several reports have been devised to capture this process: 1) a master list of all online course offerings, 2) bi-weekly status reports, and 3) QM reviewer status reports."
The paper will be presented during the DLA conference June 19-22 in Jekyll Island, GA.
