New Member Benefit: Free Webinars on the Standards of Good Practice
The Forum is pleased to announce a new and exclusive member benefit: “Understanding the Standards of Good Practice,” a series of nine webinars to take place from August 2012 through May 2013.
Each monthly webinar will cover the content of one of the Forum’s Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad
by exploring the Standard and associated Queries, illustrated by examples of best practices drawn from the Forum’s Standards Toolbox. The webinars will be led by experienced colleagues who have an advanced understanding of and experience with implementing the Standards.
“Understanding the Standards” is a time- and cost-effective way to introduce new staff to the Standards
, or to refresh the knowledge of current staff. Each webinar is expected to last one hour.
