International Credentials - Employment

What are international credentials? This term refers to education or certain qualifications that have been earned outside of Canada. There are several reasons that you may need to have your credentials assessed. If you, a friend or family member are immigrating to Canada, and you would like to apply to go to school here, or work here, you may need to have your education from another country assessed to see if it meets minimum requirements in Canada. For instance, if you are mid-way through earning a certain university degree, and would like to finish that degree in Canada, you may need to update or re-take certain courses. Or, the education and minimum requirements for certain professional or trade jobs may be different than those in your home country, and again, require you to update, or re-take certain courses in order for you to be eligible for those jobs. It may feel daunting to think that you have to return to school for a program that you have already completed. However, in many cases, the upgrade needs are minimal and can be completed quickly. There are several organizations responsible for evaluating qualifications. Learn more here, and find the resources you need to start on your journey to working or studying in Canada.

MLA Handbook

The Modern Language Association, the authority on research and writing, takes a fresh look at documenting sources in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. Works are published today in a dizzying range of formats. A book, for example, may be read in print, online, or as an e-book--or perhaps listened to in an audio version. On the Web, modes of publication are regularly invented, combined, and modified. Previous editions of the MLA Handbook provided separate instructions for each format, and additional instructions were required for new formats. In this groundbreaking new edition of its best-selling handbook, the MLA recommends instead one universal set of guidelines, which writers can apply to any type of source. Shorter and redesigned for easy use, the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook guides writers through the principles behind evaluating sources for their research. It then shows them how to cite sources in their writing and create useful entries for the works-cited list. More than just a new edition, this is a new MLA style.

International Teachers in American Schools

"United States public schools have recently begun hiring international teachers for science and mathematics classes across the country. The purpose of this study is to shed light to the practice of international science and math teachers in the K-12 institutions in the United States. This study aims to offer suggestions to administrators who are currently working with international teachers, or planning to hire international teachers. It also aims to help policy makers at the state and district levels to understand the specific issues related to the employment of international teachers. These include legal and policy matters such as teaching certification requirements, pre-adjustment (training) programs for international teachers and different diversity policies in US school districts. International teachers might benefit from this study by comparing their own experiences with the ones related in the report, and find suggestions of successful strategies they may choose to incorporate in their own teachings. This study is based on a case study of seven international teachers from India, China, Turkey and Nigeria. In addition to the teacher participants, school administrators were also interviewed and the data from these responses is comparatively examined.

Bonds without Borders

A History of the Eurobond Market

Bonds without Borders tells the extraordinary story of how the market developed into the principal source of international finance for sovereign states, supranational agencies, financial institutions and companies around the world. Written by Chris O'Malley – a veteran practitioner and Eurobond market expert- this important resource describes the developments, the evolving market practices, the challenges and the innovations in the Eurobond market during its first half- century. Also, uniquely, the book recounts the development of security and banking regulations and their impact on the development of the international securities markets. In a corporate world crying out for financing, never has an understanding of the international bond markets and how they work been more important.Bonds without Bordersis therefore essential reading for those interested in economic development and preserving a free global market for capital.
