On behalf of the TAICEP Professional Development and Training Committee, we'd like to thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for this year's virtual conference! The 2021 conference theme, "TAICEP Around the World," represents TAICEP's commitment to meet the professional needs of our members and take our association to the next level of international engagement. This year's conference will primarily spotlight the educational systems and the practice of credential evaluation and assessment of major world regions. TAICEP professional development and research initiatives will converge on a focused and unified conference experience. 

Whether you work at a higher education institution, independent agency, ENIC/NARIC office, government ministry, licensing authority, examination board, or something else entirely, we invite you to get involved! Submit a proposal that shares your knowledge, experiences, ideas, hopes, frustrations, or anything else that inspires you and will inspire others. 

2021 Programming Highlights
Each week of the conference will focus on a specific region, where conference attendees will learn about the structure of country educational systems. Sessions on country systems organized by the following regions:

  • Asia/Oceania
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • The Americas

New for 2021 are Roundtable Discussion session types. These 45-minute sessions will provide an opportunity for groups with common interests to network and discuss relevant topics.

Sessions on other critical topics such as methodology, digital student data, accreditation challenges, etc. Presenter scholarships that will cover registration costs for those in need. Additional information will be sent to presenters after sessions proposals have been approved. 

Submission Types
General Sessions (75 minutes)
Country-Specific Sessions: This year, country specific sessions will be tied to each weekly region of focus. To provide as much diversity and perspective as possible, we especially desire that presenters from different areas of the world collaborate together to share their expertise. While all are welcomed to present on a country-specific topic, preference will be given to proposals that include a presenters native to the area being discussed.

Other General Session Topics:

  • Quality Assurance: accreditation, resources, verification, digital student data, fraud
  • Professional Education: nursing education, offshore medical schools, vocational/technical education, etc.
  • Methodology and Evaluation: grade and credit conversion, transliteration, differences in document requirements and terminology, etc.
  • Administrative: internationalizing your admissions office, training new Evaluators, managing remote work and employees, strategies to increase international enrollments, trends in international education.

Roundtable Discussions (45 minutes)
Roundtable discussions provide opportunities for groups with common interests to network and discuss relevant topics. They are meant as open forums for those interested in a particular area or topic (graduate admission, issues particular to private evaluation agencies, etc.) or identify as a group with common interests (ENIC-NARIC networks, etc.). Roundtable discussions are open to anyone and must have an approved session proposal that identifies a moderator(s) and structured content approach for the session.
