Dr. Heyl will speak about two challenges CEA is tackling in order to make better use of the short time students typically spend studying abroad (usually up to a semester), as well as align and integrate our academic goals with sending institutions. We are establishing a foundation course, "Intercultural Communication and Global Competence," as part of every Global Campus curriculum and, where feasible, at partner universities.
CEA also is assessing students at the beginning and end of their study abroad term to measure advances in global skills and attitudes. We also are developing closer ties with sending institutions so that CEA's academic approach reinforces campus-based Global Competence goals.
Other panel speakers include Dr. Gil Latz, Vice Provost for International Affairs at Portland State University, and Dr. Elspeth Jones, International Dean for Leeds Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom. Read more at www.GoWithCEA.com/AIEA2.
You're invited to stop by the CEA table and meet Dr. Heyl and other CEA leadership at the AIEA National Conference Feb. 14-17 in Washington, D.C. We will be conducting a drawing for a $500 voucher for Dr. Heyl's inaugural Global Issues Seminar for Faculty, "Sustainable Development and the Global City," set to take place June 13-22 in Madrid, Spain. Home to one of CEA’s Global Campuses, Madrid offers undergraduate teaching faculty the chance to discuss environmental initiatives with academic experts, government officials, EU agencies, nonprofit advocates and citizen groups.
