Call for Proposals

The goal of this conference is to gather together a group of scholars and practitioners to share and discuss current research and practice concerned with Learning at Intercultural Intersections.

Proposals may take a broad view of intercultural learning or be focused on one of three thematic areas: Indigenization, internationalization, or web-based/blended intercultural learning. Examples of areas of interest are cultural and social sustainability, global development, mobility, language preservation, inclusive pedagogies, educational leadership and policy. Educators or students who wish to share ideas for future research are invited to propose a poster.

On the proposal page, you will be required to create an account before submitting.
