Monday, September 29

8:00 am – 4:00 pm Workshops
4:00 am –6:00 pm Consultations (priority given to EPPs based on visit date)

CI/TI Legacy Visit Workshop (Separate Registration Required)
This workshop is designed to assist EPPs using the NCATE standards for their next accreditation review with all steps of the NCATE process.

IB Legacy Visit Workshop (Separate Registration Required)
This workshop on writing an Inquiry Brief self study will focus on how to make the case for accreditation by providing evidence of candidate learning, faculty learning, and institutional capacity. Bring your EPP’s self-study as a work-in-progress and get feedback on format, content, and presentation of evidence.

Quality Assessments Workshop
This workshop is interactive and will focus on the development of quality assessments, aligning assessments to provide evidence for CAEP, InTASC, content area national standards, and/or state standards.  Methods for establishing various types of validity will be discussed (content, construct, etc.) along with the use of the CAEP Evidence Guide as a resource.

(Registration for the Quality Assessments Workshop is complimentary. Registration for the workshop will open during the last week of August. You will be notified via email. The workshop has limited seating; therefore, registration will be taken on a first come, first served basis.)

CAEP State Clinical Alliance Workshop (Invitation Only)
This workshop is a continuation of the work started by the CAEP State Clinical Alliance and reflects a fundamental commitment by CAEP and Alliance states to clinically rich preparation as a central organizing concept for implementing CAEP accreditation standards, for program improvement within participating states and for systemic change throughout the country.  The launch of Phase II of the CAEP State Clinical Alliance helped to strategically focus more attention on the substantive challenges and opportunities facing states and programs within states in advancing the Blue Ribbon Panel’s vision for clinical educator preparation programs. CAEP has created a framework for prototyping and innovative problem solving in the clinical arena based on the Carnegie Foundation’s Network Improvement Community (NIC) model.
