International education has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic. As many international students pursue their studies online this semester, study abroad and foreign exchange programs have been cancelled. In a world with little travel, closed borders, and surging infections, many are asking: what is next for international higher ed?
Join The Chronicle for a virtual forum that examines the ways in which higher ed can evolve for the future and the positive developments that may, in fact, emerge from the Covid-19 crisis.
Our panel of experts and college leaders will discuss:
- Integrating international perspectives into the curricula
- Creating global experiences that do not involve study abroad
- Innovating online programs for the current environment
- Karin Fischer, Senior writer, The Chronicle of Higher Education
- Stephanie Doscher, Director, Office of Global Learning Initiatives, Florida International University
- Ahmad M. Ezzeddine, Associate Vice President, Educational Outreach and International Programs, Wayne State University
- Cheryl Matherly, Vice President and Vice Provost, International Affairs, Lehigh University
- Harvey Charles, Professor of International Education, State University of New York at Albany
