Communication and consultation

Improving our stakeholder communication and consultation process will ensure that the accreditation and Enrolment and Degrees Awarded systems are transparent and receptive to the input. Stakeholders will experience:

  • Improved opportunities for engagement and feedback
  • Improved understanding of the rationale of specific improvements
  • Ongoing awareness of activities and changes to Accreditation and the Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey

Communication

In keeping with the direction of the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, earlier this year the CEAB struck an Accountability Committee to work towards the creation of a documented, annual performance measurement process of the accreditation system. Just as the CEAB accreditation process serves to ensure that Canadian engineering degree programs review and continually improve their ability to academically prepare graduates, a structured evaluation framework will help ensure that the CEAB continually improves the accreditation system itself.

In November we contacted deans indicating that there had been an error in this year’s Resource Report calculations. To correct this, we are updating the 2018 Resources Reports and HEIs will receive a new copy before the end of the year. The Canadian Engineering for Tomorrow Report also relies on these numbers and its publication may be delayed until Jan 2020.

On November 6-8, 2019 we participated in the fall meeting of the the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science (NCDEAS). End-user feedback on the 2019 Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey was summarized at a high level and a plan forward on how to respond to the feedback for the next survey cycle was discussed. An update on recent accreditation matters was also provided to the group.
