Working together for quality and innovation
Agenda at a glance
Session 1: Basics of AAQEP Accreditation
Session 2: Expectations and Evidence
This interactive session will be framed around AAQEP’s consensus standards for educator preparation. Participants will inventory and prioritize the evidence that best reflects their program’s quality, and that best supports innovation and improvement.
Session 3: Your Audience, Your Mission
Each institution serves a unique audience of prospective educators. AAQEP’s quality assurance expectations invite institutions to base their recruitment and admissions practices on their mission, location, and partners (i.e. there are no testing or pre-specified admissions requirements). In this session, you will work in consultation with colleagues to hone your approach to recruiting for mission and diversity, and for supporting candidates through completion as part of an overall quality assurance system.
Session 4: Partnership with Purpose
All preparation programs rely on partners in the P12 sector and beyond to ensure that their candidates are prepared and practiced professionals as they enter the educator workforce. AAQEP’s expectations invite programs to develop and document partnerships that support preparation and support partner schools and districts. In this session, you will work with colleagues to explore potential models of engagement and collaboration along with strategies for using evidence to strengthen and improve all aspects, in the spirit of John Goodlad’s notion of simultaneous renewal.
