The College of Education at Sultan Qaboos University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) 3rd December - 6th December, 2023. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the evaluation team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered and should specify the party's relationship to the provider (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
Or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Such comments must be within the specified period (from 3rd August 2023 to 22nd October 2023) and based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:
- In CAEP's performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPPs must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
- A professional education provider that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
- Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the respondent's relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review.
You can also send your comments directly to the College of Education. We value your feedback and encourage you to share your comments with us by submitting them through the Google Form available at: click here .
The specified period for submitting comments to the College is from 15th August 2023 to 15th September 2023. Your input during this timeframe is essential in helping us understand your perspectives and address any substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered.
