Experience a Quality Virtual Conference

For 2022, we’re building on our successful model from 2021. To assure a high-quality experience and maximize safe access amidst the uncertainties of the pandemic and budget restrictions, the 2022 symposium will again be a fully virtual conference spread across 3 days.

Content and Format

Sessions will address a variety of topics:

  • Current research in an area related to quality assurance and improvement in educator preparation
  • Lessons from AAQEP members drawn from their experience with the accreditation process, standards, and evidence expectations
  • Perspectives on working with state agencies, local schools/districts, and other partners
  • Strategies for solving both persistent and more recent, pandemic-era challenges
  • Assessments, tools, or other resources being used to measure, advance, and document program quality

The agenda will include a mixture of synchronous and recorded plenary sessions, structured conversations, networking activities, sponsor/exhibitor interaction, concurrent breakouts presented by AAQEP leaders, and peer-reviewed presentations submitted through the call for proposals. Session recordings and resources will be available to all registrants after each day’s sessions are finished and for 30 days after the conference ends.
