The 5th Annual Conference on Quality Assurance in Online Learning’s Call for Papers has been extended to Friday, March 22. The Conference, to be held at the Sheraton Music City in Nashville, Tennessee, is being held from Tuesday, October 1 to Friday, October 4. Registration will open in early April.

You can download tips on submitting successful proposals here.

The Program Committee encourages panels and other proposals reflecting participation from more than one institution. It is a great opportunity to work with your peers at other institutions. Handouts and takeaways are also encouraged.

We have made some revisions to the proposal process this year:

  • A choice of four (4) concurrent presentation session formats — individual or joint — of either 25 or 50 minutes in duration
  • A poster or roundtable proposal option, with each to be 50 minutes in duration
  • Learning objectives as part of proposal submissions (does not apply to poster and roundtable sessions)
  • Commercial entities are encouraged to partner with educational institutions when submitting proposals
  • Course design template discussion submissions should be proposed as poster session candidates

QM Conference Programming: Have You Seen the Innovations in Making Quality Matter
K- 12 Track?

QM’s 5th Annual Conference on Quality Assurance in Online Learning features programming designed both to help educators improve online courses and to address and report on emerging trends in K-12 education. One of these is our Innovations in Making Quality Matter track.

Innovations in Making Quality Matter
In this track we seek reports on new tools, course design approaches, and course delivery strategies to meet QM standards. Also of interest is the use of QM standards for other evaluative purposes in institutions and organizations, both inside and outside academia. The emphasis is on innovation and even experimentation. Tools and new approaches reported on ideally will reflect the presenter’s awareness of strategies adopted by other institutions or organizations and build on rather than echo them.
