Thank you to our Exemplary Course Program reviewers!

Blog Post created by debbora.woods on Jul 5, 2017

This is a special shout out to our volunteer course reviewers who dedicate their personal time, course design expertise, and much effort to review the courses that are submitted to our Exemplary Course Program (ECP)!


Information about the course review process

Three reviewers are assigned to each course submitted to the program.

Reviewers use the attached ECP Rubric to guide their course reviews in the sections of Course Design, Interaction and Collaboration, Assessment, and Learner Support. They assign a numeric score from 0-6 for the 17 total sub-categories within the four major sections listed above, and these scores align with the levels of mastery as follows: Exemplary (5-6), Accomplished (3-4), Promising (2), Incomplete (1), and Not Evident (0). Reviews are typically finished within 6-8 weeks, depending on reviewers' availability.


For their time and efforts, course reviewers are given a Certificate of Participation and an e-Badge, along with recognition in the Blackboard Community.


Thank you, to our 2H 2016 and 1H 2017 course reviewers!
