Team from BTC Attends CAEPCON2018 for Accreditation
September 20, 2018
As one of its goals is to obtain international recognition and accreditation of its teacher education programs, a team from Bahrain Teachers College attended the CAEPCON2018, which was held in Washington, DC, in mid-September 2018. The team consisted from Dr. Moosa Fateel, Dr. Hasan Al-Wadi and Dr. Issa Saleh. The purpose was to further learn about the standards and procedures required by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation, the gold standard quality assurance for teacher education in the United States. It was made clear in the meeting that BTC is already well prepared to achieve this accreditation, even though much work still must be done. The BTC team got the opportunity to meet and exchange experience with other officials at regional universities who are also preparing to apply for the CAEP accreditation or have it already, including Sultan Qaboos University, Zayed University, King Abdelaziz University, UAE University, and Kuwait University.
