TAICEP At Your Desk Conversation Series: International Credential Evaluation in Challenging Times
Apr 9 @ 10:00 am – 10:45 am
Join us for the first of a series of conversations (free!) about being an international credential evaluator in this environment that is so deeply affected by CoViD-19. Margit Schatzman of ECE will host a conversation with Garrett Seelinger of InCred about useful resources for credential evaluation, especially how working from home is encouraging greater reliance on digital resources. The conversation will continue with audience participation, including some time to suggest future topics.

Moderator:  Margit A. Schatzman, President, ECE.   Margit has been involved in international admissions and credential evaluation for over 35 years and is President of Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE).  ECE is a non-profit organization that provides services in foreign credential evaluation, research and training in international education.  ECE® Aid, the organization’s charity division, provides free credential evaluations for refugees and others in need.  Margit believes that the work of international credential evaluation professionals will be increasingly important as we navigate a post-virus world in international education.  She is excited to be a part of the TAICEP community of problem solvers and thought leaders.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in German and Geography, a Master of Science degree in Cultural Foundations of Education, and a Master of Business Administration degree, all from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.

Subject Matter Expert:  Garrett Seelinger, Team Lead / Senior Evaluator, InCred – International Credential Evaluations.  Garrett is a senior evaluator for InCred, primarily working on secondary and undergraduate document evaluations with a focus on international student-athlete educational pathways. He is currently the Chair of TAICEP’s Resources for Members Committee, which includes producing the TAICEP Talk Newsletter. Garrett was raised in Morocco and England before earning his BA from DePaul University and his MA from the University of Notre Dame. He then joined the NAIA and helped launch their credential evaluation service, InCred.
