Who Should Attend the 2017 ABET Symposium?

People who are serious about program assessment and quality assurance in STEM education.

No matter where you are on your assessment and ABET accreditation journey:

  • just starting out
  • getting a new program ready to become accredited
  • in the middle of the process and looking to optimize and maximize
  • or well-traveled and in need of a refresher

The Symposium has an excellent track record of delivering on value. Our participants walk away with best practices, smart strategies, inspiration and real connections with the people who are shaping the future of STEM education worldwide.

Institutional representatives and administrators will:

  • Strengthen their abilities to meet and exceed ABET quality standards
  • Be inspired by new and innovative ideas and methodologies in STEM education globally

Assessment leaders and department chairs will:

  • Be better equipped to design and execute successful assessment strategies for their programs and institutions
  • Find inspiration in how other programs are integrating proven teaching and learning methodologies into global STEM education
  • Gain “big picture” perspective that will help them make the right decisions as they guide their departments and institutions forward

Faculty members will:

  • Learn how their peers are using technology to enhance their assessment and accreditation processes within the context of their programs and cultures
  • Discuss case studies and best practices and translate general aspects of our criteria into clear, actionable takeaways
  • Hear first-hand accounts of how some programs throughout the globe are using assessment to enhance their students’ educational experience

We structure the event so that those from small programs or large research universities and those with ABET-accredited programs located outside the U.S. will benefit from our sessions and networking opportunities.
