Over the previous academic year, the Quality Matters (QM) Utilization Implementation Plan (QmUIP) task force members have been developing the UAB QM Utilization Plan for 2018-2021. The overall objective for UAB’s QM Utilization Plan 2018-2021 is to improve the quality of blended and online education across the university, in support of the Education pillar of the UAB Strategic Plan. To learn more about UAB’s QM Utilization Plan for 2018-2021, please visit the UAB Quality Matters website.

The following changes are a direct result of the hard work of the QmUIP task force members.

  1. All UAB QM Certified Master Reviewers and Peer Reviewers participating in UAB official QM course reviews will be compensated at $250 for Master Reviewers and $150 for Peer Reviewers. In order to continue eligibility, peer reviewers must complete the QM Rubric Sixth Edition Update.
  2. Schools/College may submit an unlimited number of courses for official and internal reviews at no cost. Reviews will be conducted on a first come, first served basis.
  3. UAB eLearning will facilitate three (3) Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR) workshops every semester. Two of the workshops will be offered on campus; the third one will be offered online provided we meet the QM minimum registration requirement. In addition, eLearning will host a Quality Matters Introduction session every semester. This session is meant for those individuals with no previous QM knowledge to gain a basic understanding of QM.
