What Will You Take Away From AACTE’s Quality Support Workshop?
Are you ready to get ahead this summer?
Make progress on your program’s quality assurance plan, get advice on interpreting your assessment data, and develop your understanding of evidence for accreditation–all at the AACTE Quality Support Workshop! Please join us for this interactive event in Columbus, Ohio, August 2-4.
Here are just some of the benefits last year’s attendees reported in their evaluations:
The series on quality assurance systems was the most valuable, as the three-session workshop allowed me to gain much more depth and insight than I would have in a single session.
[The facilitator] helped me understand the accreditation process and the types of evidence that will be required.
Breakfast and reception conversations [with] networking and sharing were very helpful for new ideas about student teaching preparation, assessment, and opportunities to learn how others are doing the work in their universities.
This professional dialogue is critical to our well-being, to our programs, and to the students our candidates/graduates teach.
As a new department head, this workshop was very valuable in helping me understand the requirements and expectations as we prepare for CAEP reaccreditation.
