Quality Matters Certification for Online Course Design

Completed my Quality Matters training today! EKU Instructional Design Center’s Nedim Slijepcevic did a wonderful job facilitating the course. And Dr. Lisa Day, Director of Interdisciplinary Studies, will be glad to hear that Women & Gender Studies, African/African American Studies, and Veterans Studies were all represented. I’m looking forward to applying what I’ve learned in future online and hybrid course designs.
