The Forum is very pleased to announce that Jonathan Sylvia of Dartmouth College successfully completed The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program. Jonathan joins colleagues who have effectively demonstrated the ability to articulate and apply the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad, and a commitment to professional excellence and ethical conduct.
Congratulations to Jonathan!
“I am an active member of our international education community and over my career have participated in many conferences and workshops. Due to this experience and training, I naturally assumed to have gained a solid understanding of how to best engage students, faculty and administrators in purposeful learning and cross-cultural global engagement. However, The Forum’s three-day Accelerated Residency Program followed by self-paced learning of The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad has exposed me to the myriad layers we as education abroad practitioners must understand to ensure we competently serve our students and institutions while providing impactful instruction in a secure learning environment. I look forward to implementing my knowledge of the Standards to enhance the quality of our off-campus program offerings by building on strong partnerships and service to constituents.” -Jonathan Sylvia
