QM standards, esteemed nationwide, presents guidelines for quality DL courses, which instructors use to check their course design strategies for effectiveness. This Round Table will present the QM standards at the start of the session and lead into a robust discussion of DL course design strategies and best practices to reach the QM standards. This session will address several pillars of the strategic mission of the university: how faculty meet their responsibilities to DL students; how QM provides critical insight for instructors designing DL courses; what knowledge QM imparts to faculty concerning quality DL course design; and how to use these strategies to engage students in the DL course.
