    Pierce College leveraged the State Board eLearning unit’s statewide consortium funding of QM to train faculty in QM and assess QM’s fit for our online program. This lightning round session will briefly share our project and the recommendations our faculty QM Team made; our first steps to facilitating effective course design and improving student success.

  3. Check out this slick peer evaluation tool that supports this often difficult-to-manage task in group work. With the free CATME web tool, instructors select choices of evaluation criteria and review team data. Students get notifications, perform peer and self evaluations, and receive feedback for improving performance. Justina Brown of WWU’s teaching & learning center and several instructors at WWU have used this tool with rave reviews.

  4. The Thorzone Climate Mapping Tool is a custom web application/Flash game for quizzing students on their knowledge of the Earth’s climates and currents. Justina Brown of WWU’s teaching & learning center demonstrated what can be accomplished on a shoe string to enhance learning; she facilitated the work between the professor and her two student employees who created this learning tool in a matter of months.
