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.

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!

TAICEP Webinar: Best Practices on Digital Delivery of Evaluation Reports
Aug 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
 
Session description:
Established in 1967, the Comparative Education Service (CES) is Canada’s only university-based academic credential assessment agency. When our on-site operations ended in March 2020, due to COVID 19 restrictions, CES faced significant hurdles in maintaining operations that were dependent on in-office paper-based workflow. This presentation will outline how CES went about transforming the production of our education credential assessment reports using DocuSign in partnership with our colleagues at EASI. Attendees will be introduced to the resources available through the eSignature Competency Centre and Enterprise DocuSign pilot, as well as take away best practices when implementing DocuSign solutions that enable divisions to deliver electronic tamper-proof documents to students worldwide securely. We will give a short demo of DocuSign as well as provide attendees with a downloadable project checklist.
 
Presenters:

Marcus Emmanuel Barnes, M.Sc., is the Lead Developer and Systems Architect at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. He manages a talented team that designs, develops, and implements software and integration solutions that support the success of the school’s strategic and educational mandates.

 

 

Peggy Zhu is the Manager for the Comparative Education Service at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. She has more than ten years of experience in credential assessment, student and customer services and work process improvement. Peggy has a Master of Education from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto.

TAICEP Webinar: Digital recognition workflows through the Database of External Quality Assurance Results (DEQAR)
Sep 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:15 am

REGISTER HERE

Description

The Database of External Quality Assurance Results (DEQAR) provides a one stop shop access to reliable information about the quality assurance of higher education institutions within the European Higher Education Area (and beyond). Among else, this public database contains over 50 000 external quality assurance reports (i.e. accreditation and evaluations) on higher education institutions and their programmes. Using technical solutions, DEQAR also enables usage of the stored data and automatic connection between databases. The presenters will demonstrate DEQAR’s data usage in the live system of the Italian ENIC NARIC, CIMEA, on the blockchain platform Diplome, through which Statements of comparability are issued, and discuss the practicalities of connecting DEQAR with recognition centers’ databases, to foster the automatic recognition of qualifications. Participants will be encouraged to share examples of digitalization of recognition workflows in their national contexts, and reflect on the successes and obstacles along the way.

 

Presenters

Aleksandra Zhivkovikj is policy and project officer at EQAR. She is responsible for the general maintenance of DEQAR, contact with agencies and end users. Aleksandra also manages project activities including peer support for agencies and maintains contact with ENIC-NARIC centers in the DEQAR CONNECT project. She holds a Master of Laws (LLM) from the University “SS. Cyril and Methodius”-Skopje and a joint master’s degree in educational policies and development from the University of Oslo, Autonomous University of Barcelona and University of Malta. Before joining EQAR, Aleksandra worked as a consultant at the OECD’s Directorate for Education and Skills.

Silvia Bianco has been working in CIMEA since September 2015 and started as credential evaluator for the qualifications coming from Arab and African countries. For this reason, she had and has an active role in the development of procedures for the recognition of qualifications held by refugees in case of partial or missing documentation. She is now in charge of the unit for the development and management of international and European projects in the field of higher education and, therefore, has been involved in the DEQAR CONNECT project.
