UAB Business Leading the Way in Quality Online Instruction

Fisher Elizabeth

Dr. Elizabeth Fisher’s online faculty training course, BUS 001: Designing, Teaching and Managing Online Instruction, is the second course in the state of Alabama to receive Quality Matters (QM) recognition and the QM seal. The first course to receive recognition was also from the UAB School of Business.

The eight week online course, BUS 001: Designing, Teaching and Managing Online Instruction, prepares instructors to develop and manage online courses while also allowing them to experience online learning from a student perspective. As the Instructional Design Manager for the School of Business, Dr. Fisher facilitates this course each semester for instructors who are preparing new online business courses. After completion of the training course, Dr. Fisher continues working with the faculty to ensure their courses meet Quality Matters standards as well. She also serves as a Quality Matters Peer Reviewer and one of UAB’s Institutional Representatives for Quality Matters.
