Autumn Workshop: Encouraging Resilience and Independence in Study Abroad

Student Learning, Development & Academic Framework (Standards 2 & 3) | 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. (CET)

Wrestling with how to bring into line the best academic intentions with a meaningful education abroad experience? This workshop focuses on Student Learning, Development and the Academic Framework for Education Abroad and will help you to identify the resources and design programming to assist in this effort. Through simulations involving specific examples, participants will address critical issues often introduced by colleagues in higher education who are unfamiliar with the importance of tying these two areas together in education abroad.

Health, Safety, Security & Risk Management (Standard 8) | 2 - 6 p.m. (CET)

This Standards of Good Practice workshop, with a focus on Health, Safety, Security and Risk Management (Standard 8), will provide the tools to assess and improve health and safety protocols. After examining the data available (including The Forum’s Critical Incident Database), workshop participants will consider how this specific Standard works in conjunction with the other Standards to guide programs in developing a solid risk management plan. Participants will practice applying different approaches to risk management as they discuss actual case studies from the field.

Title IX Information Session

No person in the United States shall, on

No person in the United States shall, on

ASAPI Title IX Information Session Thursday 15th October, 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm

Boston College, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2 ASAPI invites its members to an introduction and discussion of Title IX, the US law under which all American institutions must abide, and where it intersects with Irish law. Topics will cover data collection and reporting, privacy, consent, direct response to students, bullying in the academic setting and in the internship workplace.

The format is an afternoon of panelists representing US and Irish third-level institutions and partners, the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, the Anti-Bullying Centre and others to be confirmed.  There will be Q&A for each panelist, as well as a moderated members roundtable in the final session.

Although we all learn so much from our peers and from comparative experiences in our different institutions, this session is not a formal training workshop. Rather we hope at its conclusion to have formulated some core questions and common scenarios that can be presented to legal experts for clear guidance about Title IX and Irish law.

Space is limited to 45. Please register your interest with Thea Gilien.
