As a member of the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), which was formerly National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), ACTFL invites individuals to apply to become program reviewers. Program reviewers are trained to examine the reports and data submitted by institutions seeking CAEP recognition of their foreign language teacher education programs through ACTFL. Serving in this capacity is a professional service, and there is no remuneration to reviewers or to ACTFL.
Upon successful completion of a one-day training workshop, held on Thursday, November 21, 2013, prior to the ACTFL Convention, individuals will be assigned by CAEP to a three-person program review team. One member of the team is designated the lead reviewer and is responsible for compiling the review of the program report for submission to ACTFL/CAEP. The entire review is conducted online. No travel is required. Reviewers agree to participate in at least one review per semester.
Who may apply:
Educators from schools, universities or colleges/departments of education, departments of languages, cultures, and literatures in a variety of institutions. Program reviewers should reflect a range of language, ethnic, and experiential backgrounds.
