Two CLC courses receive QM recognition

Central Lakes College instructor Mary DeVahl had two courses recognized as QM certified by the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative.
The courses are College Study Skills and General Psychology.
DeVahl’s courses are among nearly 300 higher education courses nationwide to be given the honor this year by the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative, an organization that uses peer review of online or blended courses for Quality Matters (QM) recognition. 
Each of the recognized courses has been formally reviewed in a rigorous peer review process and meets Quality Matters standards. Each faculty member has received a certificate and a QM seal to display on their course materials.
There are 305 Quality Matters recognized courses from MnSCU institutions and the University of Minnesota from 2010-2015.
Since 2013, CLC has had 10 total courses receive the QM certification. Most recently, instructor Julie Austin’s World Literature class was recognized earlier this month.
