Develop Your World: International Education Summit at Harper College in Illinois

In a few short weeks, on Friday, February 4, 2011, I will be facilitating a breakout discussion on Social Media Tools for the Community College at the Institute of International Education and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) best practices workshop in Houston, Texas entitled “Internationalization at the Community College”.  Just after I accepted the invitation to present at this workshop I was invited to facilitate a discussion on the very same date in Palatine, Illinois at the Harper College International Education Summit.  Since I can't be in two states at once I had to decline the Harper College invitation which is a shame as I would really love to attend.  

If you are from the Chicagoland area (an nearby) and can't attend the IIE/AACC best practices workshop in Houston you might want to consider attending the Develop Your World: International Education Summit at Harper College.  For their International Education Summit, Harper College is doing something really interesting and created a Blackboard "class" and a week prior to the event all registrants will be registered and with the goal of having a variety of virtual discussions leading up to the summit to get the dialogue going before everyone meets.  Stay tuned to for more information!
