Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad


The Forum on Education Abroad. (2011). Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.


The Forum Standards are intended to be used on an on-going basis to respond to the practical realities of developing, managing and assessing education abroad programs. The Standards are composed of three interrelated elements intended to be used together in a comprehensive and rigorous process of assessment and improvement: The statements of the standards; Queries designed to be used for assessing how well the standards are being met; A toolbox of model approaches and best practices in meeting the standards. What the reader will not find in these Standards are simplistic solutions to the many complex challenges inherent in international education and intercultural understanding. The Standards are applicable to semester and year-long programs, summer programs, and short-term programs; and programs organized by domestic universities, international universities, and education abroad providers.
