« Next Generation International Education: Where we’ve been and where we’re headed »
hosted by Anthony OGDEN
Thursday November 18 at 6.30 p.m.
Amphitheater of Honor - IMT Mines Albi
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an undeniable and potentially lasting impact on international programming. Emerging developments point to the beginning of a new era, one that is challenging international educators to reexamine well-established practices, reframe priorities and pursue emerging opportunities. Despite the accelerated changes in delivery, it is still a goal of many institutions around the world to graduate learners who have nuanced understandings of the international dimensions of their chosen disciplines and the intercultural competency skills needed to live and work successfully in a globally interconnected world.
This presentation will argue that next generation international learning and engagement might be better conceptualized as a continuum, suggesting that institutions that expand their focus on international education travel to consider other possibilities along a continuum of internationalization will be better positioned to respond to the shifting demands of this new era. Participants will be challenged to reconsider preconceptions of what in-person and virtual/online instruction can offer students today.
