2013 Connecting With The World Mentor Training

The IIE pilot course, Connecting with the World: International Relations at Higher Education Institutions, aims to familiarize university and Ministry representatives in Myanmar with an overview of how to establish an international office, and the role an international office can play in linking with other institutions, establishing an international presence, and achieving other institutional goals. An outcome of the February 2013 IIE delegation to Myanmar, the twenty-week course will be comprised of asynchronous lessons that each participant will follow on their own with the assistance and guidance of an experienced mentor.

A critical part of this course, the mentors have volunteered to be paired with two or three participants in Myanmar  and provide virtual mentorship on a weekly basis from November 2013 - April 2014, and in an informal capacity through November 2014.
