Educators gather to study up on international trends
Description: More than 8,000 education professionals from 100 different countries will gather this week in Vancouver to discuss the latest trends in international education. The 63rd annual conference of the NAFSA: Association of International Educators will feature sessions on the impact of international learning in a globalized world, the flow of international students, recruitment practices, academic ethics across cultures and the future of higher education. One notable speaker includes Linda Coady, who was vice-president of sustainability at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Coady, now a fellow at the Liu Institute for Global Issues at UBC, will host a seminar titled, Be a Part of the Solution: The Role of International Education in Sustainability.
