In the US, programmatic accreditation ensures that a specific program being offered at an institution will meet certain standards for the field. This is especially important in fields such as nursing or engineering for licensure or employment but is not required for the majority of programs. Generally speaking, for US study, it’s the institution itself that faces the most scrutiny for students who want to study or work in other countries. 

In some countries, however, government recognition of an institution and accreditation of a program are *both* required in order for a degree to be fully recognized. To make things even more exciting, it is common for institutions to offer both: some programs that are accredited & fall under the auspices of the Ministry of Education or other higher education authority and some programs that are aimed at those wanting an employment qualification or who aren’t aware of that institutions might offer programs that don’t fit within the legally recognized degree system.

These non-official, non-recognized proprietary programs do not provide access to further education at public higher education institutions or employment in government jobs, but they may have validity for employment in the private sector. Proprietary programs often have more flexible entrance requirements or a shorter duration than recognized & accredited programs. They are also often advertised to international students rather than local graduates. Sometimes these proprietary, institution-specific programs are known by special names such as Titulo Propio or Lato Sensu, but in other cases, identifying validated and non-validated programs requires serious research.

Join us on a short trip around the world looking at a dozen countries where the program itself (not just the institution) needs to be accredited in order to be considered comparable to regional accreditation. We’ll work together to examine the resources and tools needed to identify programmatic accreditation.
 
We hope to see you then! Register now: https://bit.ly/2Y1UVMm

TAYD Series: Using the Internet Archive Part 1 Beginners Session
Jan 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Please join us on January 26th and 27th for our two-part free TAYD webinar series on using the Internet Archive with an emphasis on the Wayback Machine! Veteran credentials evaluators Peggy Hendrickson and Shelby Cearley will be sharing some of their favorite tips and tricks for using the Wayback Machine to assist with evaluation work. We’ll have two separate webinars aimed at beginner and intermediate users of the Internet Archive. 
 
As part of the introductory session, we’ll show you some basic steps on how to use the Wayback Machine to look up historical information from institutions like degree plans, catalogs, syllabi, entry requirements, grading scales, program standard duration, and more to ensure you are using time-appropriate information on your evaluation assessments. 
 

Our intermediate session will focus on more complex strategies for searching for these items as well as some different ways of searching for old websites. We will get familiar with using the Internet Archive’s Boolean operators, learn some history about this not-for-profit organization, and learn how we can save information individually or institutionally to the Internet Archive. In addition, we’ll look at the Internet Archive’s library to show you some of the relevant publications useful for credentials evaluations.

Both sessions will be focused on having plenty of time for attendees to practice the strategies via a scavenger hunt!  Please come ready to search and share your best ideas!  Each session will last from 60-75 minutes.  This webinar series is open to TAICEP members and non-members. 

 
To register for Part I Beginners Session on January 26, 2021, at 11 am (Eastern), click HERE.
  
TAICEP has planned three additional TAYD series to be held in the first part of the year, and the topics are of great use for our profession.  Stay tuned!
