This Advanced Workshop will focus on achieving successful processes at institutions that are implementing CDIO within their national or regional accreditation context. Within an administrative environment the starting point is often the accreditation requirements document and the question “How will we meet them?” Ideally, a good quality program already meets the requirements and a better question is “How will we show that we already meet them?” This then becomes a process of harvesting from existing documentation of the program. The program documentation includes the obvious curriculum mapping, records of student outcomes achieved based on the CDIO syllabus, and the self evaluations carried on within the program as evidence of continuous improvement.
