May 16 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Free webinar

In the United Kingdom, both the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and A-Levels have recently been reformed, and a new grading system has been brought in for GCSEs. Participants will learn about the old and new grading systems, as well as receive background information on the nature of the reforms.

Look at exam boards and how they assess students at each level of education; learn about the ‘Sixth Form,’ A-Level performance and subject choice, and how this relates to university admissions; and examine some of the differences across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales (there isn’t just one UK system).

Short summary:

Internationalization is a phenomenon that has been closely connected with change and innovation, less so with inclusion. The goals of many national and institutional initiatives for internationalization are connected to aspirations for transformation: to enhance quality, to expand learning opportunities, to engage with new and different stakeholders.
Change dynamics are complex, presenting many challenges and opportunities. Innovative and inclusive approaches to internationalization offer possibilities for the transformation of individuals, institutions, and systems of higher education that serve the common good in meaningful ways. This event provides a forum for students, scholars, and practitioners to explore new ways to move change agendas forward in a variety of contexts.

This event is hosted by the Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) and World Education Services (WES).

TAICEP Webinar: Overview of Online Verification Tools for Credential Evaluation
Jun 20 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Description: The number of tools available online for credential verification have proliferated in the past few years. Sometimes a tool is national database which allows one to verify all the university degrees awarded in their country. Other examples allow the user to validate an entire academic record issued by a specific school. The tools we encounter are as varied as the educational systems themselves and we find them from from all parts of the world. This session will introduce viewers to a variety of these verification tools, along with a discussion of how to incorporate these tools into your documentation and evaluation practices.
 
Presented by: Martha VanDevender, Senior Evaluator, Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE).  Martha Van Devender is a Senior Evaluator at Educational Credential Evaluators, with over a dozen years of evaluation experience. Her educational background in cultural anthropology and library science make her particularly well-prepared to do international education research. She has always been as interested in the resources we use as credential evaluators, as much as the credentials themselves. So it is unsurprising that when she started working remotely about five years ago that she began to focus on these types of online tools and to advocate for the policy changes that these tools enable. She looks forward to sharing this fascinating, and increasingly essential, aspect of credential evaluation with her friends and colleagues in TAICEP.
