The IIENetwork offers our members the opportunity to connect with each other, stay up-to-date on critical topics, and share expertise and experiences as current events continue to impact international education. We hope you’ll join us for one or more of these initiatives, which a benefit of 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.
More Essential than Ever: The Case For International Education
September 22, 1-2PM ET | Register Here
The higher education community – global and mobile by nature – has faced new challenges and uncertainties each day because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But amidst the chaos, the international education community has shown itself to be resilient, innovative, and collaborative, creating new best practices out of this crisis and demonstrating why international education is more essential than ever. Our Fall 2020 IIENetworker magazine will highlight how our members are approaching this critical moment and continuing to make the case for internationalization. Join three of our authors for a sneak peek of the issue and discussions on how remote exchange is opening new avenues for accessibility, how an existing partner program pivoted to virtual, and how to reimagine SIO leadership approaches in the post-COVID era.
