Barrier or support to change
Barrier or Support to Change?

…a barrier to disruptive innovation [is] created by accreditation… [p 17]

Christensen and Eyring

The Innovative University

…the situation has changed.[a]ccreditation has become more focused on learning outcomes…] [p 209]

Christensen and Eyring

The Innovative University


Accreditation and innovation
Accreditation and Innovation

  • Supportive innovationsimprove existing enterprises, e.g. by increasing quality and/or efficiency

  • Disruptive innovationschange the state of play as new players or new undercut the existing enterprises

  • Can accreditation play either role?


Key questions
Key Questions

  • How can accreditation support program improvement?

  • How can evidence produced as part of accreditation studies document quality?

  • How can policy be smarter about data?


Accreditation should benefit programs
Accreditation should benefit programs

Internally

  • Ensure evidence-based decision-making

  • Increase empirical investigation of preformance

  • Support development of cultures of inquiry

    Externally

  • Support collaboration among institutions (peers)

  • Foster partnerships with local schools(two-way)

  • Increase public awareness of documented quality


We know we re there when
We know we’re there when…

Programs are learning organizations driven by valid, reliable, empirical evidence with:
