I am very excited to post about a new collaborative tool called The Connection for International Credential Evaluation Professionals (The Connection) for the professional international credential evaluation community. Following are more specifics about The Connection that I am posting with the permission of Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE).
The Connection is a new online community for the professional international credential evaluator. The Connection will bring together individuals from around the world to collaborate, share information, and access resources regarding admissions decisions, the determination of credential equivalencies, the articulation of professional standards, and the promotion of best practices in the field.
The online community provides a discussion forum, an events calendar, news updates, resources, and other tools and information to help credential evaluators do their jobs. We are alike. We have questions. We have answers. We write publications. We give presentations. We teach. We learn. If you are new to the field, or are a seasoned expert, we all have something to contribute.
The Connection is free! To become a Connection User visit http://theconnection.ece.org/ and sign up. It took me less than one minute to join The Connection. Participation is open to any serious professional in the field, irrespective of institutional affiliation, financial support or geographical location.
