Session Format
In 2015 the Educational Developer’s Caucus (EDC) of Canada launched an initiative to develop a framework for accrediting educational development programs. This has culminated in the first Canadian accreditation framework for educational development programs, available on the EDC website and available to all: In this workshop participants will learn about the new Accreditation Framework. They will have the choice of preparing an accreditation submission for their own program or devising a framework for use in their own country. Small-group and individual activities will be used to cover the process of preparing for accreditation.
