BEVI Administrator Training
Most BEVI trainings are arranged by demand and hosted at an institution or organization interested in using the BEVI. At least once per year, we will be hosting an open BEVI training – that is, not arranged by a specific institution or organization, but open to any individuals who wish to become BEVI Authorized Administrators. At $750, fees for attendance at open BEVI trainings are slightly higher than the $500 per person fee at institutional/organizational trainings in order to cover logistical and trainer travel costs normally sponsored by the hosting institution. We also encourage potential administrators without institutional support or smaller organizations who cannot meet the 8 person training minimum to connect with other nearby organizations to attend or co-host training workshops in a cost-share model.
We are excited to announce the next BEVI administrator training seminar is being generously hosted by the American Council on Education at their headquarters at 1 Dupont Circle NW. The dates for the BEVI training session will be Thursday, May 30th (9:00-12:00pm) and Friday, May 31st (9-4pm). We are particularly excited about this seminar because all of the BEVI team members will be present to facilitate. If you are interested in this training session, please follow this link to our website for registration. More specific information about topics covered in the training seminar are available on the Training Agenda page.
We would like to welcome representatives of the Collaborative Online International Learning project. As the BEVI has been selected for a large scale COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) assessment project between the Japanese and U.S. governments, institutions who received a grant to participate in the project may register for the administrator training session as part of the project.
Several upcoming conferences at which you can network with others who use the BEVI for various purposes include:
- The Summit on Cultivating the Globally Sustainable Self
- Forum on Education Abroad
- Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research
- International Leadership Association
- American Psychology Association
- International Transformative Learning Conference
- Kansai University (Japan) and SUNY(New York City, USA) COIL Conferences
- NAFSA: Association of International Educators
