Have You Wished for a Q&A Session With CAEP?
As questions arise in your work to prepare for accreditation, have you wished for a chance to engage in a Q&A session with someone from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)? You’re in luck: AACTE’s upcoming Online Professional Seminars (OPS) #3, #4, and #5 will include just such an opportunity.
A CAEP representative will be available for asynchronous conversation, not directly “in” our courses but through them, using a Google Doc to ensure anonymity in relaying OPS participants’ questions. The CAEP staffer will be able to post answers in the document through an external link, but he will not have a view of participant discussions.
Engage in these Q&A opportunities and much more in these upcoming OPS sessions:
OPS #3 Creating Quality Assurance Systems
December 14 (registration closes December 9)
OPS #5 Preparing for Accreditation
December 28 (registration closes December 22)
OPS #4 Making the Case for Accreditation: Standards and Evidence
January 11 (registration closes January 6)
Remember, the courses can be taken in any sequence and are open to everyone. The registration fee for AACTE members is just $50 per OPS; nonmembers pay $125. For details on group discounts and other course information, visit the Quality Support Initiative web page.
CAEP and EPPs as Interdependent Systems
