The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) is launching its first online symposium with the theme of Reimagining Internationalization in a COVID-19 World.

The CBIE symposium will provide participants, K-12 to cégeps to colleges and universities, with opportunities to reflect on COVID-19, how it has impacted their institutional strategic priorities, and how it has propelled innovations to internationalization with present and future implications.

In preparation for the symposium, we are looking for input from our attendees. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to impact the world, how can the international education industry evolve and change to operate in a more innovative way? Share your thoughts on social media and don’t forget to tag CBIE-BCEI and to use the hashtag #reimagineintled.
