Quality Assurance Symposium

The AAQEP Quality Assurance Symposium is an annual conference focused on AAQEP accreditation and the various practices, processes, and policies related to quality assurance and improvement in educator preparation.

In sessions with educator preparation peers from around the country, participants learn about effective practices for quality assurance, discuss innovative approaches to stakeholder engagement, and share practical strategies for addressing pandemic-era disruptions and concerns related to equity, data quality, and other persistent challenges.

The symposium includes a mixture of plenary sessions, member meetings, concurrent breakouts presented by staff, and peer-reviewed presentations submitted through an annual call for proposals. Participants also have opportunities to engage with sponsors and exhibitors as well as with one another in focused conversation groups and social meet-ups. The Events Committee manages peer review and advises on the overall conference offerings.
