Thank you to the session presenters and attendees of the 2021 International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning Symposium in Orlando, FL and online. In a difficult year, we are gratified that so many of you were able to travel and be part of a community of like-minded scholars seeking to internationalize our efforts and solutions for enhanced teaching and learning. The Auburn University Office of International Programs appreciated your thoughts and experiences, and we took away a number of practices and ideas that we can immediately implement in our classrooms. We look forward to 2023 when we can meet again and continue this dialogue at Disney. We hope to see you join us once again.
Each workshop will be 90 minutes and should be highly interactive, covering a topic in-depth with actionable ideas for delegates.
Each session will be 50 minutes, encourage active learning, and should include ample time for audience questions and discussion. Sessions may be offered by a single presenter or a panel or may take a roundtable discussion format.
Scholars are invited to submit a 1,000-word essay related to internationalization of teaching and learning in higher education. This may be a summarization of research undertaken by the submitter but may also be an opinion or thought piece. Authors whose essays are selected for publication will also participate as presenters in one of our Speed Learning Roundtable sessions.
Scholars are invited to submit a proposal for the special volume of the Wiley journal "New Directions for Teaching and Learning" with an anticipated publication date in spring 2022. This journal will be a companion to the symposium, and it is expected that some presentations at the symposium will be selected for publication in addition to those selected through this call for proposals. The special volume will present international perspectives on critical issues impacting teaching and learning in a diverse range of higher education environments. Learn more.
