BCCIE co-hosts International Education conference in Ho Chi Minh City
The British Columbia Council for International Education (BCCIE) recently co-organized an International Conference on Quality in Leadership and Management of Higher Education with the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Training Centre (SEAMEO RETRAC) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam this past July 28–29. Over 120 post-secondary educators, administrators and government officials representing more than 10 countries from Southeast Asia and beyond gathered to share best practices and trends on the theme of Towards Excellence in Leadership and Management in Higher Education. Presentations by keynote speakers Professor Jamie Cassels, President, University of Victoria and Dr. Alan Shaver, President, Thompson Rivers University were enlightening, interesting and very well received, as were presentations by a number of other BC post-secondary representatives.
