Course Review Process
The University of Florida’s Quality Assurance Committee has developed guidelines to support online courses. These provide the framework for the development, self-review, and peer review of online courses. Every semester, courses are reviewed in three cohorts using the UF + QM rubric. All faculty who teach online can have their course(s) reviewed. The course review process is opt-in. Course reviews serve as a tool for ongoing course improvements. Courses that have been reviewed will receive a quality or high quality designation and may be eligible for awards at the university and state level.
Step 1 – Request a course review:
- After the first or second offering of the course.
- After significant changes to content, assessments, activities or organization.
- If a course has encountered challenges.
- When submitting a course for the “Exemplary” designation or award.
Step 2 – Choose a cohort:
Step 3 – Submit the following materials based on your chosen cohort date:
Step 4 – Pay it forward:
- Support other online faculty by “paying it forward”(required).
- Complete a short 1-hour training and review two courses.
- This is an opportunity to share your expertise and see what other faculty are doing!
