QOLT is an ongoing initiative established in 2013 at SF State, co-led by Academic Technology staff and a lead faculty fellow, with additional support from a cohort of faculty ambassadors and multiple administrative and faculty committees, to assure quality course design and teaching practices in online and hybrid courses at SF State. At the core of the QOLT initiative is an evaluation instrument containing 10 sections and 58 objectives. It is used to evaluate and inform the quality of courses through a peer review and course certification process. QOLT also provides outreach, professional development, instructional design support, mentorship, and recognition for instructors seeking to improve the quality of their courses.
