Module 7: Face-to-Face Training

A. What To Expect At Face-To-Face Training

The PEVC Face-to-Face Training is a one-and-a-half day experiential workshop. You will be seated at a table with other PEV Candidates for your commission. You will act as a visit team for the simulated Upper State University program. You will continue your evaluation of the Upper State University program. Please bring a printed copy of your completed online training pre-work (PEV Visit Report and/or PEV Worksheet) with you. You will use it during the training.

Through lectures, exercises, role-plays, and team meetings, you will learn to:

  1. Plan an effective, cordial, efficient site visit.
  2. Interact with your team during a site visit.
  3. Determine which criteria are relevant to determining the accreditation action given a specific situation or evidence.
  4. Determine if the simulated program complies with a criterion. If not, determine the level of compliance and the accreditation action.
  5. Conduct interviews of faculty, staff, and students.
  6. Write an exit statement to the institution.
  7. Conduct an informal debrief with the program head and exit meeting with leaders of the institution.
  8. Complete Program Evaluator forms.
  9. Demonstrate “in practice” effective use of the competencies in the PEV Competency Model.

Day 1 of Face-to-Face Training will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. and conclude by 5:30 p.m. There will be a “homework” assignment to be completed that evening. Please bring a portable computer with you to complete this homework electronically. You will submit the homework electronically as directed on Day 1 of Face-to-Face Training.

Day 2 of Face-to-Face Training will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. and conclude by 12:00 p.m. Please make travel arrangements for you to leave the training after 12:00 p.m. on Day 2 of Face-to-Face Training.

Dress is business casual.

The end of training evaluations will be similar to the performance appraisal forms completed by the team chair and fellow program evaluators. Your evaluations will be posted on the Training Secure Website a few days after the Face-to-Face Training. You will receive notification when they are posted.


B. Documents

These are documents that will be used in the PEVC Face-to-Face Training.  Please download the documents that pertain to your commission, and bring them to the Face-to-Face Training on your portable computer.  You are NOT expected to print out any of these before the Face-to-Face Training.
