ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative 2019: Preparing for Tomorrow’s Student
What will be the future of internationalization in higher education?
In the United States, student enrollment is reflecting more than ever a diversity of student identities and life stages —students of color, adult learners, single parents, veterans, first-generation immigrants, and international students. How can U.S. colleges and universities recognize the complexity of their student body as a strength and integrate their varied backgrounds as a resource for global education? Looking to our international community, what new approaches are other higher education systems adopting to internationalize?
These topics and more will be explored at the 2019 ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative, a one-day, annualconference devoted to meeting the challenges of campus internationalization. The Collaborative meets in conjunction with the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) Annual Conference. Registration for the two events is separate, and we strongly encourage you to attend both.
The design of this year’s Collaborative will include opportunities to:
- Adopt various methods of learning (experiential, interactive technologies, etc.) through which global competencies could be offered
- Rethink the way global and international education can remain relevant throughout a learner’s lifetime
- Consider accessibility to global learning across a broad and diverse spectrum of learners
- Use data to reimagine and inform the student reality
Throughout the Collaborative, international campus administrators and faculty will be encouraged to collectively develop new methods and to share best practices for engaging and preparing diverse learners with the necessary global skills to prosper in and contribute to tomorrow’s world.
