Role of the QOLT Campus Coordinators

The QOLT Campus Coordinator (CC) plays the most critical role to the success of the QOLT program at the campus level and, collectively, to the whole project.  The CC is the hub for communication coming from the CSU QOLT program, to the campus, and then to respective faculty and staff. A 1-hour informational webinar will be offered to QOLT Campus Coordinators and others interested on Monday, November 9 from 12-1p @ http://tinyurl.com/QA-program.

Responsibilities of the QOLT Coordinator:

The QOLT Campus Coordinator is responsible for receiving and communicating with CSU QOLT leadership as the project progresses.  All efforts are made toward QOLT being an organized program with plenty of lead-time, so everything will go smoothly for respective CC’s and related campus efforts. There are many components of the QOLT program and CSU QOLT leadership will do their best to make sure all aspects of QOLT are communicated clearly and in a timely manner.

The CC is responsible for announcing QOLT through appropriate campus communication channels. Sample announcements are provided. The CC will interpret all CSU QOLT announcements and materials. The CC is the campus point-of-contact and takes questions from faculty and staff participating in QOLT. If there are any questions or issues the CC cannot comfortably answer or address, they should contact the CSU QOLT Director, Brett Christie (qolt@cdl.edu; 707-486-6519).

The CC is responsible for managing the implementation of QOLT at the campus level.  This involves assigning any related staff time (e.g., instructional designer) to support the project. Related, the Campus Coordinator should incorporate discussion of QOLT into campus-related meetings, where updates can be shared regarding campus implementation and activity.

The CC is responsible for making an effort to work with the campus Faculty Development Director, or equivalent. This ensures that there is broad and balanced campus implementation of QOLT and helps to put the greatest emphasis on teaching and learning, with technology as a supporting factor. In addition, this helps to emphasize QOLT as an opportunity for development of faculty knowledge and skills (e.g., instructional design, technology integration, accessibility).

The CC is responsible for the review of their campus QOLT faculty self-assessment submissions, as well as QOLT student ratings. The CSU QOLT Team will manage the database of all submissions and provide campus datasets to the Campus Coordinators. After reviewing the submitted instructor QOLT self-assessments, student ratings, and their courses, the CC will forward one instructor and course name to CSU QOLT Team. One course from each participating campus will be featured at the system level. However, we encourage each CC to recognize as many courses as possible through campus events, activities, and announcements.
