Quality Support Workshops
AACTE’s Quality Support Workshops provide a focused opportunity for educator preparation providers to design or refine action plans for assuring and improving the quality of their programs. Each workshop is facilitated by experienced professionals who guide participants in investigating the elements of quality programs, using data to analyze program strengths and weaknesses, and understanding how quality assurance intersects with accountability policies and processes. In 2 days of interactive sessions, attendees gain new perspectives on quality assurance, work through thorny problems of practice, and share ideas with peers while developing their own quality assurance plans.
