The Auburn University Office of International Programs understands that faculty are vital to ensuring students are equipped with the global skills needed not just to react to the future but to create it for themselves. To help faculty meet that challenge, OIP will host the fourth International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning Symposium May 28-30, 2023, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida. Using an intimate and dynamic environment, the symposium encourages the collaboration of a diverse collection of global thinkers who are geared toward creating and sustaining an internationalized campus culture across higher education institutions.

Proposals for conversation starter essays, conference workshops and concurrent sessions should be submitted to the symposium website by Jan. 6, 2023. Also, there is a call for proposals for the “International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning: Continuing Conversations” special edition of Wiley Publishing’s journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning that can be submitted to the website until January 6 as well. Topics sought include international collaborations in teaching and learning, global innovations in teaching, the multicultural classroom, creative uses of technology, internationalizing the curriculum and other relevant subjects geared toward internationalization.

Early-bird registration is $700 until March 1, after which the price increases to $750. Registration includes all workshops, the opening dinner and reception at Epcot, all symposium sessions and breakfast, lunch and break snacks. The hotel is offering steeply discounted rates for symposium attendees, which can be accessed here.
