Course Quality Review

Are you looking to update your course design or just want to refresh your course? Ask for an MCPHS Course Quality Review!

We're here to partner with you in reviewing the components, structure, and pedagogical design of your online course. We'll work with you and conduct an in-depth review and provide course-specific recommendations for you. Send a request via ticket (select Instructional Support from the menu) or send an email  and ask for Course Quality Review. 

Custom course review: A custom course assessment can be requested for any online course. An Instructional Designer will be assigned to the course and provide a detailed analysis using the MCPHS Course Quality Review (CQR) evaluation tool. After the review is complete, an instructional designer will meet with you to review the report and discuss targeted recommendations if you'd like. You'll receive the full report. Get the details!

Going Forward...

There is no such thing as the "perfect instructor"; we all need to constantly improve and revise. Along with continuing to raise your awareness of student needs and class composition on a regular basis, you will also need to explore new resources. Not only can you find some of those below, but you can always consult with the MCPHS Center for Teaching and Learning.
