GoAbroad’s COO Kayla Patterson and Brodie Henry, Student Application & Technology Specialist at the Office of International Programs, Boston College are organizing the 2019 poster fair, “Uses of Technology and Social Media in International Education”.

As such, we would like to invite you to submit a proposal and would also greatly appreciate you sharing with your community. Here is an overview of the poster fair theme:

Uses of Technology and Social Media in International Education: This fair features uses of technology and social media throughout international education. Presenters demonstrate how the latest online tools and technology solutions can enable international educators and their institutions to increase efficiency and virtually engage their students.


The proposal deadline is January 9, 2019.

The NAFSA Annual Conference hosts over thirteen educational posters fairs every year. Posters are visual presentations focused on a theme that are displayed on tables and bulletin boards. Presenters explain content and answer questions, while standing next to their displays or interactive presentations (in the case of the technology poster fair). Poster fairs generally last 90 minutes. The schedule for this year’s fairs will be announced in early 2019.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Kayla Patterson.
