17-Aug-2020 Summer Institute on International Education, Japan (SIIEJ)
“The Impact of COVID-19 and the Future of International Education”
The internationalization of universities has become a central topic for our society. However, the fostering of globally-minded talent, international student recruitment and admissions, internationalization of the campus environment and curriculum, and analysis of study abroad program outcomes have all stalled in recent years. As the COVID-19 pandemic has created a critical juncture in international education, it is now all the more important that we train and support the faculty and mid-level staff tasked with moving this work forward. Therefore, we are holding various workshops and sessions for the staff members and faculty who underpin university internationalization. This project is organized by the Research Consortium for the Sustainable Promotion of International Education (RECSIE) and held in cooperation with Kansai University IIGE (Institute for Innovative Global Education) and Toyo University.
We look forward to seeing you in Japan this summer.
