Jon Burns, Founder of the Ethiopian Skateboard Park Project, Laurel Papworth, CEO of the Community Crew, and esteemed journalists Annabel Crabb, Waleed Aly and Phil Baty will join more than 120 higher education speakers from around the globe for the 27th annual Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) from 8 – 11 October 2013.
Taking place in Canberra, the theme for this year’s conference is Global Imperatives – Local Realities.
What impact do these drivers have and how can we respond to them most effectively? Conversely, what impact does international education have on the world around us globally and locally? How do local realities affect our ability to respond to global imperatives and opportunities? How do we achieve balance between global imperatives and local realities?
Education institutions are under increasing pressure to engage deeply at the international level while at the same time operating primarily as national agents within their domestic framework.
Achieving balance and sustainability in this context is often a significant challenge.
AIEC 2013 will address these fundamental issues.
Early bird registrations open soon.
Registrations for the 27th AIEC open soon and an early bird discount of $200 is available for bookings confirmed before 21 June.
