PROPOSALS DUE SEPTEMBER 22 FOR FEBRUARY 2007 CONFERENCE ON STUDENT LEARNING FOR A GLOBAL SOCIETY

Leading higher education institutions are working to better educate a changing student population and achieve student learning outcomes they will need for success in the 21st century. These campuses are internationalizing general education and departmental curricula, strengthening student services for immigrant and international students, and implementing professional development programs to address diverse learning styles, cultural differences, and cross-cultural communication. The Collaboration’s February 16-17 conference, “Transforming Student Learning for a Global Society,” will explore successful approaches to improving student learning in a global context and strategies for achieving long-term teaching and learning results.

We’re seeking a broad range of strong proposals that share successes, highlight innovations, and address challenges. The Call for Proposals can be found online at www.collab.org. Questions? Contact us at collab@collab.org.
