College Online Workgroup
I have been a member of the Colleges Online Workgroup (or COW as we lovingly call it) for a couple years now. It’s a small group of faculty that meet once a month to discuss topics relevant to online teaching. This year, we are focusing on the Quality Matters rubric, teasing apart one standard per meeting. The group started off with faculty from the College of Natural Science and the College of Arts and Letters (the two facilitators’ colleges), but has grown to encompass a broader range of fields. The different backgrounds and viewpoints, combined with the collective interest in online teaching, makes for a fun and helpful group.
