2012 AIEA Annual Conference

February 19-22, 2012
JW Marriott, Washington DC

Building a Secure World through International Education

Institutions of higher education have an important role to play in addressing the global forces that now threaten to destabilize and diminish our communities. Many are actively engaged in programs that further environmental and energy sustainability, broader access to health care and education, resolution of conflicts, pursuit of fundamental human rights, economic development, and greater cross-cultural understanding in the US and around the world. The 2012 AIEA Annual Conference provides a forum to reflect on the relationship between the internationalization of our institutions and institutional responses to these important global challenges. How do our systems, approaches, resources, and collaborative work support the efforts of institutional players to address local and global challenges? How do we promote, support, and sustain the modes of internationalization that address these far-reaching issues while remaining engaged with the cross-cultural development of students and faculty? How can we maintain our efforts to teach about discrete cultures and geographies while also taking up these world-wide issues? How can student internships and service learning contribute to this work (or not), and how do these new modes fit with our traditional approaches to overseas study, faculty exchange, and the research agenda of our institutions? Panels that create a thought-provoking conversation on these topics, particularly when they engage speakers from more than one nation, are especially invited.

Under this general umbrella, the following special subthemes are especially encouraged:

Administrative and logistical needs of colleges and universities as their international commitments grow: What new approaches to higher education administration are needed to provide appropriate engagement in public health, conflict resolution, human rights, and other issues that often unfold in logistically challenging settings or in settings that pose unusual security and health risks? To what extent are our institutions only rhetorically supportive of international work, and how can we overcome continuing barriers in resources, procedures, and strategic unity?

Defining our values in internationalization: What do we mean by global citizenship? Do some of our messages signal that experiences in established institutions located in thriving countries among relatively healthy populations are no longer truly “cross cultural”? Do we assume that students who travel to more challenging sites to engage in “service” are learning more? What are the underpinnings of these assumptions? How do we communicate our values?

Recognizing and managing impact: How do an institution’s actions reverberate beyond its own national boundaries? What are the responsibilities of those who oversee international education in shaping and assessing institutional impact on communities in another country? How has the phrase “hands on learning” translated to overseas settings, and what have been the effects (both positive and negative) of such initiatives?

Partnerships, consortia and networks: How can partnerships and multi-institutional alliances enable institutions to collectively tackle the challenges of our time and succeed in problem-solving?

Building a Secure World Through International Education

Institutions of higher education have an important role to play in addressing the global forces that now threaten to destabilize and diminish our communities. Many are actively engaged in programs that further environmental and energy sustainability, broader access to health care and education, resolution of conflicts, pursuit of fundamental human rights, economic development, and greater cross-cultural understanding in the US and around the world. The 2012 AIEA Annual Conference provides a forum to reflect on the relationship between the internationalization of our institutions and institutional responses to these important global challenges. How do our systems, approaches, resources, and collaborative work support the efforts of institutional players to address local and global challenges? How do we promote, support, and sustain the modes of internationalization that address these far-reaching issues while remaining engaged with the cross-cultural development of students and faculty? How can we maintain our efforts to teach about discrete cultures and geographies while also taking up these world-wide issues? How can student internships and service learning contribute to this work (or not), and how do these new modes fit with our traditional approaches to overseas study, faculty exchange, and the research agenda of our institutions? Panels that create a thought-provoking conversation on these topics, particularly when they engage speakers from more than one nation, are especially invited. Under this general umbrella, the sub-themes below are especially encouraged.

Sub-Themes

Administrative and logistical needs of colleges and universities as their international commitments grow: What new approaches to higher education administration are needed to provide appropriate engagement in public health, conflict resolution, human rights, and other issues that often unfold in logistically challenging settings or in settings that pose unusual security and health risks? To what extent are our institutions only rhetorically supportive of international work, and how can we overcome continuing barriers in resources, procedures, and strategic unity?

Defining our values in internationalization: What do we mean by global citizenship? Do some of our messages signal that experiences in established institutions located in thriving countries among relatively healthy populations are no longer truly “cross cultural”? Do we assume that students who travel to more challenging sites to engage in “service” are learning more? What are the underpinnings of these assumptions? How do we communicate our values?

Recognizing and managing impact:

How do an institution’s actions reverberate beyond its own national boundaries? What are the responsibilities of those who oversee international education in shaping and assessing institutional impact on communities in another country? How has the phrase “hands on learning” translated to overseas settings, and what have been the effects (both positive and negative) of such initiatives?

Partnerships, consortia and networks: How can partnerships and multi-institutional alliances enable institutions to collectively tackle the challenges of our time and succeed in problem-solving?

In addition to these themes, proposals are invited to address internationalizing higher education in the US and globally across the full range of functions including the following key areas:
  • Undergraduate teaching and learning (e.g., curriculum, study abroad, internships abroad, dual and joint degrees, service learning, international student recruitment and engagement)
  • Graduate education (e.g., exchanges, international fellowships, field studies, collaborative graduate programs)
  • Research and discovery (e.g., multi-institutional collaborative research and education, joint conferences, seminars and workshops)
  • Building campus communities (e.g., conferences and workshops, student organizations and clubs, international living and learning communities, international education week, events, performances, lectures, integrating international students, admissions and financial assistance; student and faculty recruitment)
  • Local, national and international outreach and engagement (e.g., international development projects with governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, World Bank, United Nations);
  • International partnerships, collaborations, and coalitions (e.g., joint degrees, collaborative development projects)
  • Campus leadership (e.g. strategic planning, management, partnerships and joint ventures, risk management, roles of President, Provost, Rector, Chancellor, and other key administrators; integrating support functions across the campus for international outreach)
  • International alumni and development (e.g., international alumni events, chapters, fund raising)
  • Public policy, including local, national and international laws and policies and governmental agencies
  • Professional preparation for addressing issues of global health, economic development, environmental sustainability, conflict resolution, human rights, equity, and others.
Formats

Sessions will be either 60 or 75 minutes long, including a minimum of fifteen minutes of discussion. Sessions may include a maximum of 3 presenters. Allowance for more than 15 minutes of discussion is encouraged.

Other formats: Proposals are also invited for the 2012 AIEA Showcase of Ideas, in which a single institution presents one of its initiatives as a springboard for more general conversation regarding fresh ideas and creative approaches to internationalization issues and practices. Roundtables will be available for conference participants to join the conversation, ask questions, and take handouts back to their home institution.. The Showcase will feature presenters at several roundtables in one large room, with one presenter per table and each with a table top display and handouts at their respective tables. This will be an informal session in which participants can either stay at one table to talk with the presenter there or go to several different tables to discuss informally with the presenter(s) on the specific topic at that particular table. ("Informal" means not structured and more free flowing to maximize the networking that can occur with participants and presenters.) Selection for the Showcase is competitive.

Guidelines for Submitting a Proposal
  • Indicate the type of session format for which you are submitting a proposal:
    1. a panel discussion or
    2. a facilitated roundtable discussion
  • Proposals must demonstrate that at least 30 minutes are incorporated for discussion and interaction. Panels should not be “talking heads” but rather allow sufficient time for adequate discussion and exchange between all in attendance.
  • We will give preference to sessions that include multiple institutions and diverse perspectives. Student perspectives are most welcome.
  • Regional diversity, including perspectives from institutions and presenters located outside of the United States, will be favored.
  • The purpose of the conference is to help leaders at institutions (and in the world of international education at large) carry out their responsibilities and develop new ideas. Sponsorship opportunities exist for those with services, programs or products available on the market to assist in this effort, but these services and products are not acceptable topics for sessions. We will not accept proposals that promote a product, program, university, or service. Sessions that focus on one institution will not be accepted.
  • Sessions should focus on lessons learned, challenges and issues encountered and how those were addressed. Sessions should not be a “show and tell” of a university or a program. Presenters are requested to keep details of a specific university to a minimum.
Required Information for the Proposal

A. Identification and biography

  • Session Title, Abstract and Full Description (see note below) **
  • Name, Contact Details, and Biography of Chairperson
  • Names, Contact Details, and Biographies of all proposed speakers (see note below) **

If there is more than one presenter, explain what each presenter will discuss. Please be as complete as possible and remember that the content needs to have wide applicability, comparative perspectives and an analysis of "lessons learned" useful to higher education leaders. Facilitated Roundtable sessions must describe the topic in detail, the questions posed to participants, and desired outcomes. For the Facilitated Roundtable sessions, explain what each presenter will discuss, how the discussion will be moderated, expected outcomes and how outcomes will be collected and distributed.

C. Additional Comments

  • Biographies may include presenters’ positions and major work accomplishments relevant to the presenter’s session topic.
  • The biography should be written in the third person, and consist of full sentences. Please observe the sample bio format provided in the online submission form.
  • Bios that do not conform to the sample format will not be included in the conference program

How to Submit an Electronic Proposal

Please check back soon to submit a Proposal

Be sure to save a copy of the proposal before submitting it to AIEA!

Online proposal fields must be complete in order to continue with the proposal submission. If you are unable to continue with the submission, it may be that you did not provide the information required. You will know your submission was successful when you receive an electronic acknowledgement. If this acknowledgement is not received, please submit your proposal again.

If a hard copy of the proposal is absolutely necessary for completion or if technical difficulties are encountered, please email aiea@duke.edu for guidance.

Selection Criteria

Proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Advisory Committee and evaluated with the following criteria foremost:

  • Connection/Applicability to the Conference themes
  • Originality and quality of the proposed session
  • Relevance to both U.S. and international audiences
  • Presence of Multiple Perspectives
  • Diversity of Presenters (i.e., regional, institutional)
  • Realistic allocation of time, including for discussion
  • Substantive issues discussed during the session (note again that sessions should not promote marketed products, programs, universities or services in any way)

Session proposals should NOT be a “show and tell” but rather a focus on challenges, trends, and lessons learned, with ample time for discussion.

The Conference Planning Committee will have to choose among many proposals, some of which may be similar, and will seek balance among topics and areas of importance to the membership. Proposals of equal merit cannot in all instances be selected when the result would be an imbalance in the conference’s overall coverage of topics, audiences, and regions.

2012 Annual Conference Speakers

AIEA is pleased to announce the following keynote speakers at the 2012 AIEA Conference:

Eboo Patel

Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core

alt
The Faith Line

One hundred years ago, the great scholar W.E.B. DuBois famously said that the problem of the 20th century would be the problem of the color line. While the challenge of engaging racial and ethnic differences remains with us, the issue of religious conflict dominates our headlines. While we typically see faith presented in the media as a barrier of division or a bomb of destruction, religion has also been a bridge of cooperation. What role can higher education play in positively addressing the challenge of the faith line, and how can international education and partnerships inspire our students to build interfaith bridges?

Named by US News & World Report as one of America’s Best Leaders of 2009, Eboo Patel is the Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), a Chicago-based organization building the global interfaith youth movement. Author of the award-winning book Acts of Faith: The Story of an American Muslim, the Struggle for the Soul of a Generation, Eboo is also a regular contributor to The Washington Post, USA Today and CNN. He served on President Obama’s inaugural Advisory Council of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and holds a doctorate in the sociology of religion from Oxford University, where he studied on a Rhodes scholarship.

Unity Dow

Lawyer, activist and writer

alt

Unity Dow is a lawyer, human rights activist and writer from Botswana who was the first female high court judge in Botswana’s history. She is the author of four novels and Saturday is for Funerals, a non-fiction book about the Botswana AIDS crisis co-authored with Harvard researcher Max Essex. As a lawyer, Dow earned acclaim for her stances on women’s human rights and made a name for herself in the landmark Attorney General of Botswana vs. Dow case that effectively overturned a law banning women from passing their nationality over to their children. She worked as a partner in Botswana’s first all-female law firm and was the first woman to serve as a judge on the Botswana High Court. Currently serving her second term as Commissioner of the International Commission of Jurists, she has been appointed the chair of its Executive Committee. She was one of the three international judges on the Kenya Court that oversaw the passage of its constitution.

2012 ACE-AIEA Internationalization Collaborative Meeting

ACE AIEA Collaborative Announcement
The Collaborative Advantage: Exploring the Next Horizon in Global Engagement
Saturday, February 18, 9 am - 5:30 pm
$250

ACE-AIEA Internationalization Collaborative registration covers the Saturday, Feb. 18 event only, including continental breakfast and lunch. Attendees must register separately to participate in any AIEA pre-conference workshops or conference events on Sunday, Feb. 19 - Wed., Feb 22.

The American Council on Education’s (ACE) Internationalization Collaborative is a network of over 120 institutions which has convened annually for over a decade. This yearly event provides leadership teams of faculty and administrators from across the nation with a forum in which to address pressing themes in the field of international education, share innovative models of campus practice, and network with colleagues. Members of the collaborative recognize that the coordinated efforts of key members of the faculty and administration are essential to the development of fully institutionalized, comprehensive strategies for campus internationalization and global engagement.

Through its year-long work with the Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement ACE has sought to examine the international landscape in which higher education operates and develops internationalization strategies. This year’s Internationalization Collaborative meeting will provide participating teams with the opportunity to learn more about the ways in which ACE will continue to support the higher education community through the provision of research, advocacy, leadership development, and practical tools that enhance global engagement.

ACE and the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) share many common objectives and have begun to explore opportunities to work together through jointly sponsored initiatives. This year’s meeting of the Collaborative will be co-sponsored by both associations and held in conjunction with AIEA’s Annual Conference. Participants are encouraged to attend both meetings and the Collaborative is open to interested participants from among AIEA’s membership. Highlights from the discussion will be captured and used to identify models of promising practice and strategies that can be scaled to a wide array of institutional types, sizes, and governance structures.

AIEA Workshop: Surviving (and Thriving) in Interesting Times: Career Planning and Management for International Education Leaders Today

Members $175; Non-members $350

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”

This seems to describe the international education field fairly accurately these days. While recognition of the importance of international education has never been greater, fundamental shifts in higher education and a lagging economy have combined to challenge us in a variety of ways. As the context around us changes, we, too, need to change and adapt. This workshop builds on past career workshops, but focuses specifically on what we need to do now, in this economy and this setting, to create and maintain an effective professional presence for ourselves, and to continue to lead the international agenda at our institutions.

The workshop is designed for people who now occupy positions of leadership in international education, whether as an overall SIO, or as the leader of a significant section of international activity within a larger structure. The workshop will address four main issues of interest to senior international leaders:

  • What’s changing in the career arena today;
  • Developing your vision and managing the top-level conversation at your institution;
  • Remaining effective in turbulent economic and political times; and
  • Overcoming delay, frustration and failure.

The workshop will run for a full day, and will be highly interactive.

 AIEA/AAC&U Workshop: Global Learning and Internationalizaition in the Curriculum

 

Members $125; Non-members $300

Increasingly, in mission statements and promotional materials colleges and universities promise that their graduates will thrive in a complex, interdependent, and pluralistic world.

Such designs include both general education and the majors. Workshop participants will define global learning outcomes for their own institutional contexts, begin to map the outcomes onto new and existing curricular terrain, and consider the types of assignments through which students can demonstrate improved global knowledge, intercultural skills, and personal and social responsibility. Workshop participants will also explore successful institutional strategies to help solidify investment in internationalization and global curricular designs. Co-sponsored with American Association of Colleges & Universities.

AIEA/EAIE Workshop: Bologna & Global Impacts - What SIO's need to know

Members $125; Non-members $300

What do SIOs need to know about the impact of Bologna on partnerships and other aspects of international education? While Europe is consolidating and enhancing the European Higher Education Area, developed under the Bologna process, it becomes increasingly clear that this process has had and will continue to have considerable effects in other countries as well.

The workshop will provide deeper knowledge about the consolidation of European higher education and the challenges ahead. How are the effects on international cooperation and exchange being felt? The impact, for example, of the new mobility benchmark and other political decisions will be discussed. Furthermore, the workshop will discuss the impact of this process now, with particular focus on what institutional leaders in other countries need to know about the impact of Bologna and in working with European institutions. Co-sponsored with the European Association for International Education.

Learning outcomes

Participants will:
  • Gain up-to-date knowledge of the consolidation of the Bologna process in Europe
  • Develop a greater understanding of the impact of the Bologna Process in other countries
  • Identify emerging trends in cooperation and competition

AIEA/NACUBO Workshop: Successful Strategic and Operational Approaches to Campus Internationalization

Members $125; Non-members $300

As the international presence of US institutions grows, many issues regarding compliance, finance and legal issues, risk management, cash management, tax, HR and other infrastructure and operational support arise. How does the Senior International Officer work with various leaders at the institution, particularly those outside the academic area: general counsel, compliance officers, risk managers, comptrollers, tax and human resource officers? To set an institution on the most successful path as international programs grow, and to get the most out of institutional investment, networking among disparate parts of the university becomes increasingly critical. Learn about resources available for chief business officers (and their staff) in higher education who are motivated to understand international operations and to support them. Learn how institutions have successfully set up networks, specialized functions, or other approaches to ensure sufficient coordination and opportunity to work collaboratively with the provost, researcher or faculty member before one runs into an unexpected problem financially or legally.

Sunanda Holmes of Johns Hopkins University, Marta Perez Drake of NACUBO (National Association of College and University Business Officers) and others will lead discussion of successful strategic and organizational approaches to these challenges and will refer to NACUBO's latest web resources that are geared to educate business officers working with the institution's leadership on international efforts. This workshop will focus on a typical US context and is geared to leaders in US institutions, but colleagues from other countries are welcome, should they want to consider adopting similar approaches in their own national context. Co-sponsored with the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO).

Presenters:
