National Recognition

Support for Programs Seeking National Recognition From ILA


All those who are preparing program reports for submission to CAEP for ILA Program Review with National Recognition are strongly encouraged to attend an upcoming workshop. Institutions that send representatives to these workshops have an increased opportunity for ILA National Recognition on the first submission.

Workshops will help guide the program report compilation and include learning about the Standards for the Preparation of Literacy Professionals report as well as learning about the rubrics, scoring guides, and the most recent developments from CAEP. Individual 30-minute consultations will also be available.

Upcoming Workshop

The CAEP Program Review with National Recognition from ILA Workshop for Reading/Literacy Specialist Program Writers and Reviewers will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at the ILA 2019 Conference in New Orleans, LA. This interactive workshop is led by literacy researchers, teacher educators, and ILA program reviewers and designed for reading program faculty seeking effective ways to redesign their graduate program curriculum. Registration will be required, and seating will be limited.
