The ABAI International Task Force on Education was formed in 2020. It includes representatives from ten countries. The goal of the task force is to develop a model of education that can meet the needs of constituents around the world. The task force generated a model of education that has been reviewed and supported by the ABAI Accreditation and VCS Boards, and the ABAI Executive Council. Constituents from India, Japan, and Norway will provide an update on the on the task force’s progress. We welcome attendance of all those interested in this effort.

Jack Michael’s influence on the field of behavior analysis was profound. His refinement and extension of several of our basic concepts and principles (e.g., establishing operations, positive and negative reinforcement, automatic reinforcement, verbal behavior) has greatly advanced our understanding of human behavior. However, Jack’s legacy may be most obvious in the numerous students he taught over the years, many of whom have had distinguished careers as researchers, practitioners, and teachers in their own right. Each has made significant contributions to behavior analysis, thus extending Jack’s legacy even further. Six of Jack’s students from his early days of teaching will offer comments and insights regarding Jack. Following their remarks, audience members will be allowed to provide very brief remarks about Jack.
