This study illustrates the development, usability, and advantages of an electronic exhibit for the TEAC (Teacher Education Accreditation Council) academic audit from the perspective of program education faculty. The examination of the successful utilization of electronic exhibits for teacher licensure and educational leadership program IBs (inquiry briefs) provided a post-audit opportunity for process reflection and refinement. IB components, program claims, and TEAC standards provide critical elements for the design and organization of the electronic exhibit room. Technology was effectively used to demonstrate the overall quality of programs and create a system for sharing the story of one school of education. Conclusions include electronic exhibit room advantages and disadvantages for faculty and program improvement. This article summarizes the academic audit at Regent's School of Education and suggests recommendations for exhibit development and presentation of electronic evidence for accreditation.
