ForumEA Week in Milan: Join The Forum for 1 or 2 conferences back to back from 17-21 October, 2022 in Milan, Italy! The inaugural Career Integrated Global Learning Conference at the nhow hotel will be followed by the Forum’s Regional EMEA Conference hosted by Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. Both events will be bringing educators and providers back together in person for some long overdue learning and networking!
What will the world of work look like for future professionals? Which skills and knowledge will be most applicable? How can these be enhanced through global learning?
Internships and career-integrated global learning are among the fastest growing areas of education abroad, allowing students to access high impact international experiences with immersive engagement in the local community. Ranging from individual placements or industry-based projects to pre-program research or re-entry workshops to MNC site visits or NGO case studies, the opportunities to explore how current education applies to future professions are vast. And the challenges are real.
The goal of The Forum’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Conference is to create a space for shared dialogue to explore the pressing issues shaping the future of international education in these regions. In expanding the scope of what had previously been our European conference to include the Middle East and Africa, we aim to elevate the voices of colleagues in these regions, provide a platform to discuss their realities, and learn from each other.
International education is certainly trying to “open up”: to open or reopen international activities after the initial brunt of COVID-19, open up our communities to students and visitors from abroad, and open up our institutions so that local students and faculty benefit from the inclusion of broadly diverse peers – both at home and through mobility. Our world has shrunk in many ways due to the pandemic, yet at the same time it is being opened up both by the truly global nature of the social, economic, and environmental challenges we face.
