    • Activity #1: Discuss how one of your online or hybrid courses (ideally, you've chosen a mature course that you've taught more than once) does or does not meet Standard 2 of the Quality Matters rubric. Quality Matters General Standard 2: Learning Objectives. Especially, look at essential standards 2.1, 2.2, 2.3. and 2.4. You might demonstrate portions of your course to the group to illustrate your points. It's ok if your course does not meet the standard. Let's brainstorm ways to redesign our courses so that they will meet the standard.
      • Tips on how to discuss the standards and give peer feedback: constructive, specific, measurable, sensitive, & balanced. external image vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation.png GivingPeerFeedbackFLC.pptx
