PROGRAM RESOURCES, POLICIES & PROCEDURES (STANDARDS 6 & 7) | 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM
David Shallenberger (School for International Training)
This workshop provides the training to align your organization’s policies with the available resources, according to best practices as articulated in Standards 6 and 7. Through discussion and analysis of specific case studies, participants will explore how these two Standards can assist an organization in attaining more effective use of resources through the proper implementation of policies. This qualifies as a Forum Certification Workshop.
HEALTH, SAFETY, SECURITY & RISK MANAGEMENT (STANDARD 8) | 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Natalie Mello (The Forum on Education Abroad)
This Standards of Good Practice Workshop, with a focus on Health, Safety, Security and Risk Management (Standard 8), will provide the tools to assess and improve health and safety protocols. After examining the data available (including The Forum’s Critical Incident Database), workshop participants will consider how this specific Standard works in conjunction with the other Standards to guide programs in developing a solid risk management plan. Participants will practice applying different approaches to risk management as they discuss actual case studies from the field. This qualifies as a Forum Certification Workshop.
