Quality Matters in MN

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/continuinged/qualitymattersinmn.html


The Minnesota Online Quality Initiative (MOQI) was developed in 2012 by two partner institutions, Minnesota State University, Mankato and Northland Community and Technical College from the belief that through collaboration and coordination among institutions in Minnesota and some centralized support for institutions, institutions in Minnesota could

  •   Save 25% or more over the previous cost of Quality Matters training and course reviews
  •   Reduce duplication of efforts and processes
  •   Increase opportunities for faculty collaboration and collegial sharing
  •   Increase faculty engagement in institutional efforts to meet Chancellor Rosenstone’s goals for providing Extraordinary Education which will result in increased Completion and Retention in Minnesota.

MOQI is implemented and administered by Statewide Representatives for Quality Matters in Minnesota, Linda Jacoby (Minnesota State University, Mankato) and Elizabeth McMahon (Northland Community and Technical College).

Part of the cost for Quality Matters workshops and courses (the Applying the Quality Matters Workshop, Peer Reviewer Course, and the Master Reviewer Course) and for course reviews is being underwritten by Minnesota Online.

At this time, 33 MnSCU institutions are affiliates, along with five University of Minnesota campuses and the Department of Education (which works with K-12 districts) and coordinated QM workshops, certification courses, and course reviews are provided system-wide.
