Best Practices for Building a Local POCR Team
Cerro Coso Community College has always been committed to offering quality online courses. To reinvigorate this notion of quality online courses, the college has built a local peer online course review (POCR) process, modeled after the CVC-OEI POCR process. This process is not yet OEI approved, but we are pursuing approval. In this session, the Cerro Coso POCR Team Chair and the Distance Education Director will discuss the steps and processes they’ve taken to build a POCR Team. Additionally, participants will hear direct experiences of faculty members who have gone through the local review process.
By the end of this session, participants will learn best practices for building a local POCR Team.
Attend this event in one of three ways:
- Online from anywhere (Webinar Registration - Zoom)
- From a regional hub (How to Attend)
