Pathways in International Education: Charting the Course

This year’s theme, Pathways in International Education: Charting the Course, looks at the mechanisms that enable collaboration and opportunities in international education. The term ‘Pathways’ can be interpreted in different ways and there are many players who work together to enable these education and transition opportunities. Whether it is an international school, language school, school board, college, technical institute, university, organization, industry partner, or government, the success of pathways rests on the collaborative efforts of those involved to identify and strengthen pathways that create opportunities in international education. At CBIE’s 51st Annual Conference we will work together to ensure that the necessary tools are available to create sustainable pathways and chart the course in international education.

Venue Update: Due to unexpected delays in the construction of the new Halifax Convention Centre, #CBIE2017 will now be at the Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre.
