The overall purpose of the Quality, Assessment, and Subject Coordination Task Force Center is to "ensure that the distance learning objects, modules, courses, and programs being developed are pedagogically sound and that resources are being used in the areas of greatest need."
The following Expected Outcomes were outlined for the center:
- Develop an inventory of current best practices that have been used to effectively guide distance education course and program development.
- Using this inventory construct a set of standards for developing interactive, pedagogically sound distance learning courses and programs.
- Develop a system for collaboration among the current VLC course development structure, the Technology Center, and the Professional Development Center to provide a team approach to quality assurance in the work of the Centers.
- Develop a system for assessing content areas and student support services for which distance learning opportunities are needed.
- Develop a system for assessing existing VLC courses and programs and making recommendations for quality improvements.
The Quality, Assessment, and Subject Coordination Task Force Center is also responsible for coordinating activities at other Centers in the following areas.
- Development of discipline specific interactive learning content and resources;
- Development of student-centric learning activities;
- Assessment of student learning and evaluation of results to guide course redesign activities;
- Assessment of the integration of technology resources into courses.
The executive summary provides an overview of the Center’s projects to date along with analysis and recommendations.
