Meeting the New Distance Ed Accreditation Requirements
Distance education accreditation requirements have
changed. Are you ready?
Anyone involved in distance education knows that it is constantly and rapidly evolving. But the technology and instructional methodologies are not the only things that are prone to change.
The accreditation requirements for distance education have changed too, and many higher education institutions will need to adopt new processes in order to adapt to the new requirements.
The Interregional Guidelines for the Evaluation of Distance Education has changed the accreditation landscape for all five of the regional accrediting organizations that have adopted them.
The new white paper, Meeting the New Distance Education Accreditation Requirements, will walk you step-by-step through the changes in the guidelines.
These guidelines, which now apply to every higher education organization seeking accreditation for distance education programs, create uniform standards and also call for new practices and documentation.
Meeting the new requirements will require the involvement of a broad range of constituents from throughout your institution. Some of these constituents will be new to and unfamiliar with the accreditation process.
Meeting the New Distance Education Accreditation Requirements provides a solid foundation for meeting accreditation guidelines. It will help you identify who at your institution needs to be involved in the accreditation process, what kind of data and documentation you need to collect, how to determine any current deficiencies in your processes, and how to develop a plan to bridge any gaps and prepare for any accreditation event.
