Roles and Responsibilities – The following are the roles and responsibilities of the QLC:
  • Training and Technical Assistance – Members will have the opportunity to participate in regular trainings and request TA.  Technology will be used to enable people throughout Minnesota to attend trainings and receive TA remotely in order to remove travel as a barrier to involvement in the QLC.
  • Advise – Members of the QLC may be asked to provide input to the QMAC or to the funders on a voluntary basis.  The request for input may be about issues related to quality management training and technical assistance needs.  They may also be asked to comment on the Funders annual quality goals and strategies, as well as other issues related to quality management plans.
  • Networking and Recruiting – Participants will have an opportunity to network with their peers on a regular basis at trainings and meetings of the QLC.  The QLC will promote the use of technology to enable people to network in between meetings and increase remote access to meetings and trainings.  Participants will also be asked to inform others about the Quality Learning Community and encourage them to participate if they might find it helpful.
