ACEI’s Virtual Intensive Training (VIT)

Each month, we will spotlight a service provided by ACEI. This month we’ll shine the light on our Virtual Intensive Training (VIT) program which includes 1 to 1.5 hours of concentrated instruction from basic to advanced information covering topics from general international evaluation methods, country-specific evaluation guidelines, education framework/multi-country studies and fraud detection techniques. Our training workshops are designed for individuals at schools and institutions of higher education in the U.S. and abroad who evaluate credentials in-house or use an outside service. VIT training programs will provide you with a competitive advantage and the tools you need to make informed decisions about your international applicants for both undergraduate and graduate admissions.

“The training was immensely helpful and we look forward to moving ahead with this knowledge. Great job and thanks!” Dr.Mandy Hansen, Ph.D., Northern Arizona University

The Lesson, filmed from 2014 to 2019, examines how, despite Germany's reputation for exemplary Holocaust education, its national curriculum is backfiring in rural areas where educators encourage middle school students to view the events of World War II from the Nazi perspective. Younger generations of Germans lack basic factual knowledge of the subject and are unintentionally taught to empathize with the fascist point of view through immersion exercises that reap the net effect of desensitizing young people to their nation's dark history.
