Forum on Education Abroad: Upcoming Workshops in Georgia and Pennsylvania

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

On January 15th, the Georgia Institute of Technology will host a full-day workshop on the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad. The Standards provide a means to assess all areas of education abroad programming and offer guidance in how to ensure quality in areas such as academic programming, student conduct, resources and personnel, and policies and procedures. Using the Standards as a guide, the workshop facilitator will assist the participants in examining their own capabilities at their respective universities or organizations. This workshop will be highly interactive through the use of case studies and the opportunity to discuss the participants’ issues of interest.

The Forum will then facilitate two half-day workshops on January 16th at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. A QUIP Peer Review Training workshop will be offered in the morning. This workshop is a prerequisite for becoming a Peer Reviewer in the Forum’s Quality Improvement Program (QUIP) and focuses on the concept of quality improvement for education abroad, the implementation of the Forum's Standards of Good Practice, and the role and responsibilities of the QUIP Peer Reviewer. 

In the afternoon, the Forum will offer a workshop on Standard 5: Preparation for the Learning Environment. After a very brief overview of the Standards, participants will discuss various models used to prepare students, faculty and staff for both the sojourn abroad and the return home. Participants are expected to leave this workshop with plans for improved orientation and re-entry models.
