It is intended for a broad audience, including but not limited to faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and adjunct instructors who wish to understand more about the QM process and perhaps become QM Peer Reviewers.

Participants who successfully complete Applying the QM Rubric may wish to continue on to the Peer Reviewer Course (PRC).The PRC specifically addresses the roles and responsibilities of a QM Peer Reviewer. It is intended for anyone who wants a detailed understanding of the Peer Reviewer’s role during course reviews.
