Digital Delivery Program Update
CACREP continues to guide programs for a post-pandemic academic environment and continued academic quality assurance. CACREP will keep programs informed about digitally delivered programs on its website.
To facilitate a common and shared understanding of digitally delivered programs, on October 20, 2021, CACREP released a Glossary of Digital Learning Terms that: (a) programs now need to use as they reconceptualize the delivery of their programs; and (b) CACREP will use in its review of the Digital Delivery Substantive Change and Digital Delivery Update reports. CACREP is currently piloting its Board-prescribed templates for the two reports mentioned above. Final reporting template will be made available in January 2022.
As a way of preparing for the impending reporting requirement, programs are encouraged to look at the Standards for Digital Delivery of Program if their program was accredited as an on-ground/in-person or a hybrid program or to look at the Standards for Digital Delivery Updates if their program was accredited as an online program.
As questions come in regarding digital delivery of programs, CACREP will respond to them on a Frequently Asked Questions webpage that will be regularly updated.
