AACRAO Free Webinar: Blockchain Detangled 2.0: Making the Case for Registrar Adoption
Jan 10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This webinar is a follow-up to Dr. Garrett’s Blockchain Untangled webinar, which focused on her path to understanding and then implementing blockchain in her work. This next step involves making a case to registrars to adopt blockchain to ward against diploma mills and individually produced fraudulent credentials, such as fake diplomas and transcripts. Participants will gain an understanding of blockchain, and hear her case for why having registrar support could bring this 3.0 web technology to fruition for validating institutional credentials.

TAICEP Webinar: “If at first you don’t succeed…”
Apr 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Description: Among American universities, admissions decisions consider the grade point average (GPA) as one of the variables that determines a student’s acceptance into a program. Having accurate and uniform calculations of the GPA are essential when establishing best practice policies at institutions and evaluating foreign credentials makes these matters even more nuanced. Given the varying interpretations of grading scales from other systems of education, this webinar focuses on the grade of failure, provides multiple perspectives on how they affect credential evaluation and illustrates inevitable inequalities in institutional and organizational guidelines.
 

Presented by:  Bernard Ramos, Vice President and Senior Evaluator at Educational Perspectives, a not-for-profit credential evaluation organization based in Chicago.  Bernard studied at DePaul University and Sciences-Po Paris and has more than 12 years of international education experience.  He is fully trained on all systems of education and has presented at various conferences and led numerous training workshops on credential evaluation.
