Fullerton – Our focus for 22-23 is to support 5 new faculty through the QM course certification process. We’re trying a new approach this year – created a 5 step process for the academic year: (1) faculty member completes a full QM self-review by end of Oct; (2) discusses that self-review with CSUF QM consultant & gets access to Canvas course of resources to support areas to work on based on feedback; (3) submits course for a QM Prep course review by end of Feb; (4) reviews QM prep review results with CSUF QM consultant and prioritizes needed improvements for course certification review (will be supported by an instructional designer also); and (5) submits course for QM certification review by end of Apr. We are also hoping to offer a campus DYOC+ Learning community at least once during 22-23 - it will address the QM DYOC requirements and add more community engagement, practice, and tips.

Deb Perry (SF State)
21:01
SF State: Our QLT goals are focused on the Canvas transition on our campus for AY22-23. We have an asynchronous course on Bridging Canvas, we're developing workshops, and starting a faculty coaches program. I'd love to hear what other teams have done to support faculty successfully through this transition.

Chiara Ferrari - Chico State
23:13
Chico: slow start, because of Canvas and READI a new hub for Research in Equity, Antiracism, Diversity, and Inclusion, and creating a canvas shell for an asynchronous QLT course. Sending out a call in the next 2 weeks, for a 5 series of workshops in Fall 2022, we hope to launch the asynchronous QLT VERSION IN Spring 2023
Adam Mitchell (CSULB)
23:20
CSULB - We are excited to partner with faculty in enhancing teaching and learning through our QA efforts via the QM process. We are planning on leveraging our staff who are QM Facilitators and offering on-campus IYOC and APPQMR. The academic affairs devision has also asked our office to begin the discussion of implementing an 'online teaching readiness' certification (requirement) for instructors who would like to teach their courses online. In addition, we continue our LMS transition from D2L Brightspace to Canvas this fall semester.
Catherine Hillman Cal Poly SLO
23:34
I will share on chat rather than video. Cal Poly SLO is transitioning from quarters to semesters, and we have been sending quite a few faculty to the Course Reviewer workshops. We’re hoping to certify online courses early on in the process, and we’ve identified additional revenue sources to help with reviewer stipends. This past year has been a move from online to blended courses, and we’ve seen a drop off in interest in online courses, but a strong interest in continuing to use online resources for blended/hybrid. It’s going to be an interesting couple of years through the transition, but we feel like we’re in a good place!
Deb Perry (SF State)
23:48
Thank you @Cynthia, @Katie, and @Kim!
Beverly Bondad-Brown (LA)
23:48
Cal State LA – Continuing our Online Course Development Program (https://www.calstatela.edu/cetl/online-course-development-program)We anticipate 17 faculty in our in-house training; 10 faculty in IYOC; and 10 faculty going straight to QM Preparatory Review. All courses must pass QM Preparatory Review to receive a stipend.
Adam Mitchell (CSULB)
23:56
Also, we are focusing on marketing efforts to identify courses for QM formal certification.
Mary Bennett Fresno State
24:06
Fresno State is running an ACUE microcredential cohort Designing Learner Centered and Equitable Courses, a new DEI cohort that was piloted this summer, Lessons from our Lounge that are faculty led 50-minute workshops on topics of their choice, since our policy on teaching on line has been suspended the committee will hopefully be reviewing courses for certification vs. course for online approval on our campus.
Laura Otero (CSUMB)
24:12
CSUMB has 4 goals this year: to get at least 10 faculty members to complete one OCS course (DYOC or IYOC) + produce their individual course improvement plan + at least 1 consultation with an ID to review the course improvement plan + discuss strategies for completion (including a timeline for completion). At the end, we'll host an awards ceremony for faculty to discuss the process + showcase their improved courses. To promote these opportunities, we'll create an asynchronous workshop for faculty to learn about the grant along with live workshops to recruit participants.
Zahra Sotoudeh (Cal Poly Pomona)
24:44
Cal Poly Pomona: Our grant is for a program called CHAI (Champion for accessibility and inclusivity). We focus on training faculty to create accessible and inclusive courses. We are have representative in each college that will hold training workshops for their peers. At this point we are in the process of finding champions for all colleges. We also have an online accessibility course that the champions will facilitate.
Shelli Wynants (Fullerton)
24:58
@Deb - Fullerton offers 1:1 consultation appts with IDs via Zoom (45 min appt) - faculty have found that helpful - we have a weekly signup of slots and limit faculty to 3 per week (unless we have availability and they want more)

Betsy Eudey, Stanislaus (she/her)
26:06
Stanislaus - supporting a new QLT Reviewer FLC that will prepare 12 faculty to engage in course reviews using version 3 of the rubric, and to propose a campus process/policy for local informal and CSU formal course reviews. Beginning to develop new processes for evaluation of impacts of participation in QLT trainings. We've had lots of staff turnover in our Office of Academic Tech, and unclear how this will impact faculty development and supports. We've had some new departments indicating interest in offering majors in online/hybrid formats (Substantive change) and we need to figure out what, if any, new supports are needed for these programs.
Mary Bennett Fresno State
26:43

Sacramento State: Summer - ACUE Inclusive and Supportive Learning environment summer-fall workshop close to 60 participants. We had a course completed formal review over summer and one course completed internal review.Fall – we are launching an FLC focusing on preparing course for internal and formal review. We will mentor 10 faculty. We have a new instructional designer who will work with us to provide support in the course certification process. We also have several courses in the pipeline for course reviews. We are also exploring ways to support departments that have reached out to us to receive support on quality assurance and QM reviews
Roger Wen - CSUEB
28:10
CSUEB - Other than Canvas migration, we are using CO QA funding for our Online Transformation cohort 20, starting with 10 faculty, providing DYOC, and aiming to get 10 courses certified by QM next spring. This year Shara Cheng (our eLearning Specialist) will be managing our QA grants.
Susana Marcelo, Northridge (she, her, ella)
28:27
Northridge: We have several goals this year including a streamlined process to gather faculty interest in course reviews and provide guidance on the process through 1-1 with faculty. Participants will be encouraged to self-assess through CSUN's eLearning Institute, which uses the QLT rubric to guide faculty on aligning their courses and implementing best practices.

Humboldt - Year long program: Institute for Inclusive Teaching Excellence. This program is a grant funded collaboration between the Center for Teaching and Learning and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion intended to support Cal Poly Humboldt educators in re-imagining teaching and students’ learning through evidence-based and culturally relevant pedagogical practices, inclusive course design, and the strategic utilization of 21st Century technologies. This is an exciting opportunity to engage with colleagues to design significant student learning experiences, reduce equity gaps, and demystify teaching excellence. The Institute launched in a three day event in August 2022.

Sorry I had to pop in late. For CSUCI: we are running a revise version of our Online Teaching Preparation Program that we are calling the OTPP Institute. We are piloting the new program with a Global Languages faculty cohort. Still hosting various support between Zoom drop-in hours, one-on-one learning design consultations, and more. We also partnered with OneHE to host "Fall Faculty Challenges" for both new faculty and returning faculty, including a "Book Club" Challenge.
