Join our panel of global leaders – from America and from the Americas, from the Asia Pacific and Australasia – to discuss, present, and debate our differing global experiences and practices on the key themes of internationalization, interculturalization, and indigenization. Each region comes with its own histories, issues, diversities, dynamics, complexities, and policy responses. The conference itself, the keynote address, and the audience will raise issues that exist for us in K-12 and post-secondary, in public and private, in urban and rural settings.
