APPQMR (Applying the Quality Matters Rubric) is a virtual offering of the Quality Matters flagship workshop on the underlying principles of the Quality Matters rubric, an instrument for assessing the quality of online courses. Learn how to use the QM rubric as you apply it to a demo online course and recommend practical course improvements.
Open Scholar Cafés are new online monthly meetings for the ISU community to talk #OpenResearch. All experience levels are welcome, and each call will cover a new topic of interest to the community. Join us to learn, talk, and collaborate.
This is the second session of a three-part series that looks more indepth at components of the IRB submission process. Participants in this will discuss risk in human subjects research and approaches for minimizing or mitigating risk. We'll also examine confidentiality and data security measures to protect research subjects.
Web talk, Structural racism, institutional transformation, and diversifying the STEM faculty (SABER)
The small number of Black, Latinx/a/o, and Native American faculty in STEM has been increasingly identified as cause for concern, and multiple interventions have been proposed and implemented to increase representation. Decades of research suggest that interventions must go beyond focusing on "fixing" minoritized scientists, instead turning our attention to how campuses and STEM disciplines perpetuate racism and inequality.
This topic-based teaching and learning community meets throughout the academic year. We work as teams to optimize application exercises, readiness assurance tests, peer evaluation, and other aspects of course design, and also invite speakers to facilitate discussions of TBL theory, research and classroom application.
