Presentations in Montreal - Universities Canada & AIEA conference

And the North American adventure continues with a range of presentations on my research and Australian consultancy work in Montreal!

Having presented an Australian perspective on internationalisation data and performance indicators on Friday at a Universities Canada international planning day, I've spent the weekend getting ready for three presentations at the 2016 Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) conference early this week.

AIEA is the only association in the world focused exclusively on professional development, advocacy, information sharing and networking for leaders in the field of international higher education, and it's annual conference is a go-to event for Senior International Officers (SIOs) in the US and further afield.

At this year's conference, I'm therefore delighted to present the following sessions:
  • New research on internationalization: moving from theory to practice - with Laura Rumbley (Boston College Center for International Higher Eduction - BC-CIHE) and Robin Helms (American Council on Education Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement - ACE-CIGE)
  • Internationalization and faculty engagement: Comparative perspectives and grounded approaches to best practices from Canada, Australia and the U.S.A. - with Melanie Agnew (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater) and Rhonda Friesen (University of Manitoba) 
  • Internationalizing Australian Higher Education: The Next Agenda - with Bill Lacy (University of California, Davis), Laurie Pearcey (University of New South Wales) and Chris Ziguras (International Education Association of Australia and RMIT University)
I've also been asked to join the AIEA Editorial Committee for a three year term (2016-2018) and am looking forward to the first meeting of the new committee during the conference.

N.B. Copies of each of these presentations will be available to download from the Presentations & Workshops page of the blog shortly.
