The All-College Distance Education Committee (DEC) has recommended that all faculty complete the self-assessment refresh process for their online courses every 3 years.
The refresh process includes completing the Distance Education Rubric for Course Assessment (DERCA) and the Matrix for Instructional Engagement (MIE), tools designed by the DEC to support distance education best practices and to help meet MSCHE federal, and state compliance regulations. This process also supports our student success goals.
The refresh process is an excellent way for you to self-reflect and determine what is working in your course for your students and what may not be working. It's important to use this time to evaluate your course from the student perspective.
The DERCA and MIE are available on the Faculty Clipboard which is accessible via Montco Connect. Both form are electronic.
This article will show you how to access the forms, how to complete the forms, and how to submit the forms.
