Workshops & Training

Thanks to the generosity of our host members, The Forum is able to make Forum training opportunities more accessible by offering regional workshops around the U.S. and overseas. Workshops may be either half-day or whole-day, with an in-depth focus on and exploration of The Forum on Education Abroad’s Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad. Led by experienced Forum-trained facilitators, they are designed to be highly interactive, timely and informative, providing participants with current best practices and how these practices can be implemented to meet the Standards of Good Practice.

Workshops can also serve as modules for The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program and Competency Credentials, which provide colleagues with essential education and training and certifies that they are able to articulate and apply the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.

Registration fees are listed on each workshop page. Minimum enrollments must be met by registration deadline. The Forum’s cancellation and refund policy can be viewed here»
