Prairie State College has a course review process for online courses that is described in the Faculty Handbook for Online Education. The review is based on the instructional design standards that are identified in Appendix B of that document.
Instructors who are interested in having their online course reviewed can do so in the following ways:
- Conduct a self-review of your own online courses (using the standards in Appendix B).
- Ask one or more colleague to review the online course (using the standards in Appendix B).
- Submit the course for a faculty peer-review by the Online Education Steering Committee - contact Lirim Neziroski.
- Ask Online Learning to conduct a course review - contact Lirim Neziroski or Online Learning.
The course review process is not an evaluation of your online teaching. It is a review of the instructional design elements in the course - ie, how the course is organized.
The course review process can help identify opportunities for improvement, and it can provide documentation and evidence of continuous quality improvement for program accreditation purposes.
