This session will provide an overview of the rationale and process for using the CDIO Standards to meet accreditation expectations. The overview will examine the nature of the CDIO Standards and their relationship to discipline-specific and other accreditation standards in terms of their purpose (improvement vs. accountability), level of specificity (generic vs. specific), and comprehensiveness (broad vs. narrow). In addition, a general process will be described that is based on case study reports by CDIO Collaborators. This session will form the basis for CDIO Leadership Council policy and procedures and will be linked to other related sessions.
