JOIN US IN AUSTIN FOR THE 2017 CIEE ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Students today were “born digital.” They have never known a world without broadband internet, smartphones, or the ability to reach into their pocket for the answer to almost any question. They are resourceful researchers and future-focused pragmatists who fully expect to be successful on their own terms.

And now Generation Z is attending college. Are we ready?

The study abroad community – advisors and faculty alike – is facing an enormous challenge: How do we keep international learning relevant for a generation that grew up on Snapchat and Instagram?

How do we harness the power of technology to improve advisement and recruitment, while enriching the cross-cultural and academic aspects of location-based programs? How can faculty integrate technology into pedagogy to improve global learning outcomes and teaching effectiveness? How can technology help to overcome the barriers of study abroad: cost, curriculum, and culture? How do we leverage new technology and skills to deepen experiential learning? What new opportunities do these technology tools provide?

One thing is certain - the innovative global programs and experiences abroad that will prepare today’s students for the future must incorporate 21st century learning approaches.

Please join us in Austin, Texas, November 8-11 for an engaging and thought-provoking conversation. For additional information, please visit our conference website.
