International Program Development
Getting your international program off the ground may seem a formidable task at first. Our Educational Services team will gladly provide the consultation you need to make the important decisions that will shape your school’s unique program. Having built programs from idea to implementation ourselves, we will listen to your vision and offer informed advice on how to make it reality.
At Three W International, we are well aware of the many hats school administrators must wear. Our Educational Services team is here to assist with the additional tasks that running an international program may generate. We are familiar with SEVIS, budgetary concerns, staff and student support, and all other administrative aspects of running a successful international program.
“Very well done presentation. It was well received by my staff and found to be very helpful.” –Head of School
International transcripts can be difficult to decipher. Our team is not only familiar with deciphering international transcripts, but we are also well versed in academic placement. We will help your team determine the courses the student has already taken and should receive credit for as well as which courses the student will still need to take in order to guarantee a timely graduation. We are also very familiar with the most commonly used international student language proficiency tests and can make recommendations based upon student test scores on these instruments.
In addition to working with fledgling programs, our Educational Services team prides itself in providing ongoing support to its partner schools. As your program grows and your needs change, we will be there to help optimize it for future success. Look to us to provide additional professional development on topics important to your faculty, to work with new hires in better understanding the needs of your international students, and to support your vision and your mission as the years go by.
“Your webinars are great for further professional development, and improving skills with students.” –Teacher, Webinar Attendee
Our Educational Services team understands how busy teachers’ lives can be so our team has made our resources readily available to our schools. We produce our quarterly webinars on topics important to your program and run them twice and then archive them on our website’s Resources tab for your convenience.
“Excellent information. Even though I have been teaching for years, it was great to hear strategies that work with our international students. Thank you!” –Teacher, Webinar Attendee
“Thanks. This was very helpful as I think about my interactions with both my Chinese students…….and my American students. This was practical, clear, and organized. The presenter was obviously an experienced teacher. ” –Teacher, Webinar Attendee
Also under the Resources tab you will find two video series produced by our team: one entitled “You are Coming to America” for your students that addresses their needs and concerns, and a second entitled “Faculty and Staff Resource Videos” to address questions you may have.
Finally, we run Think Tanks two times a year that allow educators, administrators, staff, and program directors to discuss topics of importance to them with their peers across the nation. Moderated by our Educational Services team, these Think Tanks are tailor made to address the most important issues concerning the subjects you teach and the roles you play on campus. From how to approach classics such as Romeo and Juliet to ways to help students make domestic friends, the ideas shared in these forums are timely and dynamic.
“Very helpful and it was great to get some reminders and fresh ideas from people who know the field. I’ve really appreciated and found the think tank to be helpful!” –Teacher, Think Tank Attendee
