Global Skills Opportunity (GSO), CBIE, and the CBIE Education Abroad Professional Learning Community (EA-PLC) will facilitate a webinar to support Canadian post-secondary institutions in developing and designing their international experience programs. Discussion and reflection during this event will include both in-person and virtual approaches.
This learning webinar will be open to the Canadian international education community (not limited to CBIE members). Simultaneous French interpretation will be available.
This webinar will focus on how institutions prepare their students for an international experience, including how support can be more accessible to underserved populations. This discussion will also begin the conversation on frameworks for further engagement of these students upon their return.
