In order to participate in the POCR process you should have the following requirements in place:
- Teach a course that is formatted for a fully-online experience (no onsite requirement)
- The course should be one in which you plan to continue to teach 100% online
- Your course is current in CurriQunet
- You have taught your course at least two semesters in a fully online modality
- You are familiar with accessibility and how to create accessible PDFs, and slides
- Your course uses a C-ID OR is in high-demand for transfer agreements with IGETC, CSU/UC, AA
To join the team:
- Please contact campus POCR lead Monica F. Ambalal (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inquire about becoming part of our local POCR team. While you do not have to be a certified reviewer to be on the team, you should however, demonstrate a desire to learn about alignment, the POCR rubric, and be willing to spend 2-3 hours a week working on your course.
- We will have monthly POCR meetings to track our progress.
Consider Signing Up to Become a POCR Reviewer
- At Merritt College, we have five certified POCR reviewers that have completed the class offered by @one which helps train faculty to become a local reviewer at their home campus. Classes are free and offered directly through @one. Please note that reviewer training should only be completed by advanced users of the Canvas LMS, and those that already have basic knowledge of accessibility.
- Classes are offered typically 2-3 times a year, and are completely asynchronous and facilitated
- Funding is available for POCR reviewers (TBA in Spring 2023)
