Submit Your Conference Session Proposal Now!

The Forum is now accepting session and workshop proposals for its 12th Annual Conference, Navigating the Intersections: The Cultures of Education Abroad. The conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, April 6-8, 2016.
Education abroad is a field of intersections. In every program, different national identities, learning models, values, disciplines, languages, traditions, institutions and organizations encounter each other in distinctive ways that create the unique cultures of education abroad. Education abroad lives and thrives at the intersections of these ideas and realities.
The deadline to submit session and workshop proposals is September 4.
