The QM K-12 Rubric as a Course Development Roadmap

In this session we will explore strategies for applying the QM K-12 Rubric to the process of online course development. See how the development team at Michigan Virtual School used the QM K-12 Rubric and Annotations to increase course quality and development efficiency. First, we will present a process for developing institutional best practices by closely studying each Standard.
