The University Office of International Programs will downlink an interactive video-conference, "Going Global: How Colleges Deliver Programs Internationally," on November 15, from 1:30-4 p.m., in the Donaldson Brown Hotel and Conference Center auditorium.
The conference is produced by The College Board and will be broadcast to numerous sites around the country by the PBS Adult Learning Satellite Service.
"This is an opportunity for our university community and others in the region to hear from and question educational practitioners who have created and delivered a number of innovative international programs. The conference is designed to provide practical, step-by-step information to help the university compete more successfully in the international education and training arena," said Patrick R. Liverpool, Virginia Tech's vice provost for international programs.
The video-conference will feature profiles of innovative, successful international programs at several universities and colleges across the country.
Panelists, including some who will represent the featured university and college programs, will be Carol B. Aslanian, director of The College Board's Office of Adult Learning Services; Miguel Cardenas, executive director of the International Training Center at San Diego State University; Dennis Jeffers, associate dean and director of international extended degree programs at Central Michigan University; Brenda Robinson, assistant vice president of global distance learning at California State University, Monterey Bay; Stephen C. Dunnett, vice provost for international education at SUNY-Buffalo; and Albert N. Koller, executive director of Community Colleges for International Development.
