The intention behind organizing this symposium is to gather a small group of teacher-scholars at the cutting edge of scholarship on teaching and learning to explore theories behind, approaches to, and practices of globalizing learning. Speakers will be invited to contribute to the Spring 2019 themed issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal Currents in Teaching and Learning.
Some of the questions that both the symposium and themed issue will address include (but are not limited to):
To kick off the symposium, Laura Rumbley, associate director of the Boston College Center for International Higher Education and a distinguished leader in the field of international education, will deliver the keynote address.
If you are interested in participating in the symposium as a presenter, please send your abstract to Martin Fromm at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstracts is June 1.
