The 2022 CIEE Annual Conference took place in Seoul, South Korea November from 8-10. The theme this year was 75 Years of Pathways to Peace. We celebrated those that have paved the way for international education and cultural exchange in our world.
As international exchange professionals and educators, how do we respond to the challenges of this era and plan for future opportunities? How do we ensure study abroad programs remain vibrant, accessible, and impactful? And in this time of changing global dynamics, shifting areas of political conflict, and the new reality of health and safety, how do we design our programs so they contribute to world peace?
During the 2022 CIEE Annual Conference in Seoul, we reflected on the role of international education in public diplomacy, reimagined study abroad within today’s global context, and celebrated 75 Years of Pathways to Peace.
Day 2 – Focus on Best Practices
Creating communities of practice. Learning from our colleagues. The concurrent sessions on day two of Conference allow us to share from our wealth of experience and current research on what makes for successful, enriching international education programs in our rapidly changing world.
Day 3 – Focus on Innovation
With the pandemic seemingly receding, international student programming has widely returned. The temptation to get back to a pre-Covid “normal” is strong, but is it wise? How has education abroad changed and what does the future of our profession hold? These are some of the questions on the agenda for day three of Conference. We start with an “innovation summit” where all are invited to contribute to imagining the future of study abroad.
