Turlington, Barbara; Collins, Naomi F.; Porcelli, Maura
Based on interviews with project directors and additional research, the American Council on Education has developed this guide to help faculty and administrators address credit recognition for coursework and internships abroad. The guide provides resources and sample methodology and outlines elements that project directors have identified as keys to success. It illustrates processes and credits that have facilitated credit, course, and internship recognition. The elements and instruments detailed in this guide are a compilation of lessons learned by project directors. To supplement descriptions of processes and approaches, the guide also includes products or descriptions of products devised to facilitate smooth understanding. Also includes are three sample sets of steps to follow when approaching articulation issues, checklists to systematize discussion, and a list of useful resources. Thirteen appendixes contain the samples and other examples of practice. (SLD)
