Adapting the Accreditation Procedures to a New Educational Technology

Dorian Cojocaru, Razvan Tudor Tanasie, and Anna Friesel

Abstract—The FP7 PELARS (Practice based on Experiential Learning Analytics Research and Support) project deals with the problem of developing a new educational technology for practical activities. As it is stated into the project proposal, the project produces and evaluates technology designs for analytic data generation for constructivist learning scenarios in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) topics, including: technology solutions, infrastructure, activities, assessment, curricula, and classroom furniture and environment designs. The project addresses three different learning contexts (postsecondary design studios, postsecondary engineering sciences classrooms, and secondarylevel high school STEM learning environments) across four national settings in the EU. In the upper defined context, this paper deals with the problem of adapting the accreditation of the engineering programs to the new educational technologies.

Index Terms—Educational technology, experiential learning, accreditation.
