    “The course review process is a collegial discussion between faculty peers committed to Continuous quality improvement. It is not an evaluation. Centered in national standards of best practice, the research literature and instructional design principles designed to promote student learning. . . . And it’s not a win/lost or pass/fail test…… the rubric in the review process functions as a diagnostic tool to facilitate the continuous improvement of online courses.”
