First fall Global Studies Roundtable is Friday, Sept. 25, 1 p.m. Public is invited

Please join us Friday, Sept 25 at 1 p.m. (CT) for the first of the Fall Global Studies Roundtable discussions. Margaret Wenger from the Milwaukee-based Educational Credential Evaluators will be speaking on: Taxi Drivers and Doctors: Comparative education and Student Mobility.

“When the student sitting next to you in class (or on the Zoom), or the dentist who filled your cavity came from another country, who decided that they had the appropriate educational background? In many cases, it’s someone who specializes in comparative education. In a globalized, mobile world, more and more people are educated in multiple countries, with different grade, credit, and accreditation practices, as well as different underlying educational philosophies. The speaker, an international credential evaluator, will introduce the field and its applications, and why it matters to everyone, whether you study abroad or not, with a few pointers in spotting fake educational documents.”

The public is invited to this discussion taking place via Microsoft Teams at this link.
