ABET’s Institute for the Development of Excellence in Assessment Leadership (IDEAL) is a professional development opportunity that thoroughly equips you to lead your faculty in the development and implementation of a program assessment plan.

Over four days of expert guidance and interactive group exercises, you’ll work with colleagues to develop the skills and knowledge to make you an effective assessment leader. For more information on what you will learn, topics covered and more, please visit the IDEAL home page.

This workshop is best suited for individuals who are familiar with the basics of program assessment or have relevant experience. Assessment experience can be substituted with prior completion of ABET’s Fundamentals of Program Assessment Workshop.

This course is not recommended for those who have taken ABET’s Advanced Program Assessment Workshop recently.
