IIENetwork COVID-19 Engagement Series

As our world has become unsure amidst a global health crisis, IIE is working hard to enable higher education institutions to connect with each other, stay up-to-date on critical topics, and share expertise and experiences. We hope you’ll join us for one or more of these initiatives, which are free of charge with your IIENetwork membership. Alongside conducting the most up to date research on how the world of international education is responding to the COVID-19 crisis, we have developed two new engagement tools to create space for members to share information, what is working, and challenges they face. We will continue to announce new topics and content in future.

The COVID-19 Pivot: Innovation and Agility During Crisis | Register for webinar

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, institutions and organizations everywhere were forced to take quick action, spurring a flurry of changes and updates to the way we work on all levels. In addressing the question of how we continue to deliver programs, training, and education to those who depend on us, many have responded with timely, innovative solutions. This webinar will look at how different types of entities have pivoted as a result of the pandemic, how they led those changes, and how these innovations may influence the future.
