As we progress on the full development of Tandem, the project team is actively configuring the system to carry out the accreditation process. The project team has undertaken multiple rounds of internal testing and will continue to modify the system based on internal and external feedback.
The Accountability in Accreditation Evaluation Strategy is a framework through which the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) can assess and inform the effectiveness, trustworthiness, transparency, and efficiency of the accreditation process.
In the first year of data collection, we gathered input from various stakeholders, including:
Date entry on Tandem for the Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey (EDAS) opened on April 19. The EDAS is an annual survey of Canada's undergraduate and postgraduate engineering programs to assess trends in enrolment and degrees awarded over a five-year period. The results highlight enrolment trends by discipline and institution, as well as the number of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees awarded each year.
Canadian Engineering Education Association
The Annual Conference and General Meeting of the Canadian Engineering Education Association will be held virtually this year and hosted by the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering at the University of Prince Edward Island on June 21-23, 2021. The theme of the conference is “Stimulating a Sustainability Mindset in Engineering Education”.
The Required Visit Materials Working Group consultation on the recommendations of their report regarding changes to the type of quantity of materials that programs is on-going.
Deans and designated officials of programs who hosted an accreditation visit in the 2020-2021 accreditation cycle will have received an email from their Accreditation Coordinator inviting them to participate in the Accountability in Accreditation survey for this year. They will also have received a survey link to pass along to the students that participated in the accreditation visit.
The 10th annual conference on graduate attribute and continual improvement process (GACIP) for engineering programs in Quebec or French-language institutions will be held virtually on Thursday, May 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This event is presented in French.
This is an opportunity to collectively reflect on the different approaches to continual improvement while sharing lived experiences, discussing good practices, and identifying areas for improvement.
The Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey will be opening in April and institutions will be able to begin inputting their 2020 data. Institutions that have not yet identified the individual(s) who will need Tandem accounts to input their data should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In April, the CEAB Required Visit Materials Working Group will be launching a consultation on recommended changes to the materials that programs are required to submit as part of an accreditation visit. To orient stakeholders to the recommendations and consultation process, the working group will be hosting a series of English and French introductory webinars.
