On January 26-28, NIST will host Alliance for International Education World Conference, with the theme of ‘Engaging with Difference’. AIE is an organization promoting intercultural understanding and collaboration and is connected to Bath University through the Board Members of Jeff Thompson and Mary Hayden, who have done a lot of research and published leading books in the field. AIE is hoping to generate a lot of interest in the local practitioners in the field of international education. It would be great to have your staff present some case studies, or lesson plans how they have ‘engaged with difference’ in their schools. The presentations are only about 20 minutes so this is a great way to get your work recognized!
We are also setting up a Local Committee, that will be involved in organizing the Conference. Most of the logistical work will be done by NIST, but we would like to welcome all your expertise in publicizing the event, and encouraging student involvement, e.g. in the form of IT help, presenting some projects etc. This will not take up a lot of extra time, but will ensure that you get to attend a fantastic Conference with lots of new learning and research! If you, or anyone in your staff, are interested in acting in the Local Committee, please advice them to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about the Conference on AIE website.
