Program Events and Announcements

Accreditation Networking: Sharing and Caring

For the spring 2024 networking series, MAERB has designed two topics, with three webinar options for each topic, with the goal of having as many people participate as possible.  As the substance of the conversation will depend upon the participants, the sessions held for each topic will not end up being identical; however, the MAERB presentation for each session will be the same.  To allow as much participation as possible, you are asked to sign up for only one session under each topic.  There is a limit of 100 people per session, based upon the limits of Zoom. MAERB will close the registration for a particular session when that cap has been reached. 

The specific topics are outlined below. 

Accreditation Tips and Tricks

Achieving and maintaining accreditation is not an intuitive act, as it requires familiarity with the CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines, along with a range of supplementary documents.  This networking session will focus on Program Directors sharing tips and techniques about how they make the process of complying with accreditation an easier task.  There will be a brief presentation from a member of the MAERB staff, and then the participants will be broken up into small groups and will share with each other their tips and techniques.  Finally, each group will report out so that there can be networking amongst groups.

Teaching the MAERB Core Curriculum

While the MAERB Core Curriculum outlines a range of specific items that need to be taught and assessed, the methods of teaching and assessment can vary considerably from program to program, even when the same textbooks are used.  This networking session will provide Program Directors the opportunity to share what innovative materials they have incorporated into their programs and classrooms to effectively teach and assess the MAERB Core Curriculum.
