Disruption in International Education: Challenges and Opportunities
Our presentation will highlight the changing roles in higher education as we navigate the many challenges and seek opportunities for success in international education for our campus stakeholders. COVID-19, climate change, incidents of mounting racial and international tensions have forced modifications on our global planning frameworks. We must re-align priorities and identify new opportunities with short to long-term strategies along with the use of technology/virtual tools to facilitate global learning, research partnerships and engagement. This discussion will examine how individuals, colleges, universities, and nations can provide intentional international education for all global learners.
