The field of International Education is dynamic and multifaceted. K-12 school jurisdictions, post-secondary education, and the private sector will perceive it with very different lenses. Is it a profitable venture reserved for the world's privileged or a unifying endeavour that helps us address global challenges? This presentation will examine some of the many faces of international education and suggest how an aspiration of intercultural understanding may align them.

Guest Speaker:

Dr. Avis Beek is an Assistant Professor at Laurier, and her research interests are centred around international and comparative education including non-formal education for refugee children and teacher training for international contexts. Prior to joining the academic community at Laurier in 2020, Avis was a secondary school teacher in Nunavut, Bahrain, Malaysia, Japan, and the Czech Republic and has been working with a refugee education program in Greece. She teaches a range of courses in Laurier's International Education Studies program.

This program is part of the Laurier EdTalks series and is presented in partnership with the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty of Education.

Registrants will receive an e-mail 24 hours before the start of the program with an invitation to join.
