This webinar is directed at schools that will be completing and submitting their self-studies in 2019 and 2020. The webinar will allow for a small number of participants to engage via videoconference in an interactive manner. Dr. Doug Kennedy of Virginia Wesleyan University and Dr. Ariel Rodriguez of Springfield College will be reviewing via on-screen sharing COAPRT self-study expectations and examples. Participants will also be encouraged to share their own questions and materials. A significant amount of time will be spent in discussion of participant questions that will be collected prior to this session. The Council is committed to making the best use of the accreditation process and the time spent on it. By sharing Council expectations and examples of what has worked well in the past, the intent is to help schools focus on the work that will be of greatest value and save faculty time.
