CSU QLT Awardees


From 2011-2016, CSU Academic Technology Services sponsored a Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT) Awards and Recognition program to recognize exemplary teaching and learning in blended and online courses. These courses were evaluated using the 58-item QLT instrument and involved an instructor self-assessment, student-ratings survey, and a peer-review. The following are the QLT Awardees who were selected each year of the program, many of whom have contributed to the Quality Assurance Resource Repository (QuARRy).
