ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative 2019: Preparing for Tomorrow's Student

 

January 19, 2019 8:30 AM

 Summary

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, annual conference 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.​​

As institutions discuss their overall intentions to foster inclusion, there is a necessary overlap between diversity and internationalization. How can higher education leaders navigate the complex challenges associated with creating educational environments that promote social inclusion, diversity, and intercultural learning?  How can campus international offices sustainably partner with diversity services in support of intercultural exchange for international and domestic students? How can senior leadership set up system support for these two offices to collaborate? What existing resources can be utilized? This session will feature institutions who are advancing new analytical frameworks, enhancing pedagogy, and developing innovative ways of fostering collaboration between internationalization and diversity/multicultural education on campus.​
