The virtual  AACRAO International Institute Event provides a unique opportunity for individuals who work in international admissions, study abroad, and credential evaluation to learn industry best practices and the application on the job. 

The International Institute taking place on July 14-21, will engage learners with AACRAO content in a hybrid environment that utilizes self-paced and instructor-led sessions. Through the application of industry best practices, learners evaluate authentic international student records both in real-time during the faculty-led sessions as well as in the self-paced courses. 

These faculty-led sessions offer a supportive learning environment where best practices learned in the self-paced courses are applied to authentic international student records. Learners work in small groups with designated faculty who provide an in-depth perspective to each record and method of evaluation. This detailed hands-on practice evaluating authentic foreign credentials in a collaborative environment allows participants to demonstrate the capability of determining credential comparability and admission eligibility.

Attending the International Institute is a great way for new professionals in the fields of international admissions, study abroad, credential evaluation, and senior professionals to update their skill sets or provide policy guidance for their international office. The International Institute also provides a fundamental understanding of educational systems and the ability for the learner to apply standard industry methodologies to evaluate academic credentials for freshman and graduate admission. Learners will use analytical skills and judgment in comparing and contrasting educational models, national systems, international educational credentials and utilize primary resources to determine the recognition status of H.E.I.s, the authenticity of records, grade conversion, and credential recommendations. 

The International Institute utilizes a learner-centered approach with opportunities to engage with authentic international credentials and records, providing a demonstrable skill set to take back to your desk.
