Join peers and experts at the largest gathering in the field of international education to explore the theme for the NAFSA 2015 Annual Conference, New Horizons in International Education.
Now more than ever, we are challenged to keep pace with rapid change in learning environments, budgetary realities, student and scholar mobility trends, and national interests. How can we demonstrate the impact of international education on students’ lives, employability, intellectual capacities, and ability to face 21st century challenges and document the success or failure of institutions to prepare globally competent graduates?
Public and private players are exploring the use of technology as a way to organize and deliver education. Increased virtual cross-cultural learning and collaborative learning opportunities are developing. The awareness of the role international education plays in the development of the global civil society is growing. Students may study in three or more countries during their education; degrees may be earned at more than one institution at a time.
Such examples of what’s on the horizon for international education are exciting, but the keys to success lie in innovative strategies, practices, and solutions. The 2015 NAFSA Annual Conference in Boston will be your venue for lively debate and dialogue with education leaders from around the world, articulating and facing the new horizons in international education.
