|Inquiry Brief Workshop
Educator Preparation Programs planning to follow the Inquiry Brief accreditation pathway are invited to attend the IB workshop with a team of faculty, administrators, support staff, and technology staff who will be writing the self-study report.
The Inquiry Brief workshop is organized so that participants can return from the conference with a good start on a draft Brief, as well as a solid understanding of the accreditation process and the role of the Brief in that process. During the workshop, participants will construct clear, concise, accurate, and defensible claims about their programsí outcomes and learn how to select, evaluate, and use evidence to support those claims.
Experienced educator preparation faculty and CAEP staff will share accreditation standards and procedures with conference attendees. Individuals directly involved in preparation for accreditation review and those new to the Continuous Improvement, Inquiry Brief, and/or Transformation Initiative accreditation pathways will benefit greatly from this professional development experience.
Major topics to be covered at the conference include standards and principles of accreditation, details on the various accreditation pathways, reviewers' expectations regarding candidate effectiveness in P-12 student achievement, the program review process, and the development of assessment systems. A focus of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation will be to build institutional capacity to raise the quality of evidence submitted for accreditation.
