AAQEP offers four types of events to support professional learning and development around quality assurance and program improvement.
No-cost introductory webinars about AAQEP, its standards, and its accreditation process are available to the public. Live 1-hour webinars present information and updates and include time for Q&A with AAQEP staff and individuals from member institutions; recordings are also posted for ongoing reference.
Professional learning workshops are open for public registration (AAQEP members receive a discount) in both online and in-person formats. The virtual workshops, delivered in 3-hour Zoom sessions, are offered on a regular schedule. Workshops may also be arranged by request as all-day, in-person events hosted by a campus or other facility.
No-cost webinars and online forums are offered on a regular basis to support AAQEP members and peer reviewers in their work. These meetings address topics such as developing proposals and self-studies, preparing for site visits, and writing annual reports as well as ad hoc topics generated by the membership.
Regional and national conferences are open for public registration (AAQEP members receive a discount) and generally convene in person. These events provide a variety of presentation formats and foci, with extended opportunities for collaboration among educators as well as with members of AAQEP’s staff and volunteer leadership.
