QM Success Stories

There is no substitute for experience! Your colleagues who have experience meeting QM's rigorous course design Standards and implementing QM on their campuses can provide you with valuable insights and experience. "QM Success Stories" webinars are presented by your colleagues and fellow members. They will share their experiences on topics like these and more: 

  • How do I create a plan for implementing QM at my organization?
  • What does a course look like that has met QM Standards?

The sessions are scheduled once per month and are FREE for members only! Space is limited to the first 500 registrants. You can register once and view the webinar with colleagues. The webinars are also live captioned! Can't make it? All QM Success Stories are recorded and available to subscribers after the session in the Reference Library located in MyQM approximately two-weeks after the session.
