Call for nominations: 2013 Award for Innovative Research & Scholarship in Internationalization

I'm posting the following to IHEC Blog at the request of the NAFSA TLS KC team.

The Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (TLS) Knowledge Community of NAFSA is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2012 Award for Innovative Research & Scholarship in Internationalization, and Call for Nominations for the 2013 selection process.

This annual award honors those who have made substantial contributions to theory and practice that can be applied across the field of international education. The award specifically honors "path-breaking" research and scholarship, from veterans and early to mid-career researchers alike, that has changed how we as international educators advance our work. The 2012 Award for Innovative Research & Scholarship in Internationalization goes to Bruce La Brack for providing a deep understanding of how culture concepts across multiple disciplines, including anthropology and intercultural communications, are actually learned and interpreted by students, and how micro level interventions, including re-entry programs, can be used to improve student learning. His work highlights the complexities of how internationalization changes individuals and how theory can be applied to practice. Congratulations to La Brack on this award and his many contributions to the international education field! A call for nominations and criteria for the 2013 selection cycle have been posted at Nominations should be done by a peer or can be self-nominations, and must be accompanied by copies of works/publications to be reviewed. Nomination materials and questions should be addressed to Nominations will be accepted until July 29, 2012.
We hope you will consider nominating a colleague, or nominating yourself, and participating in this new effort to recognize innovative research.

  1. It’s great to see La Brack recognized for his (obviously) hard work! I wish I’d known about this award a few years ago. I had a professor that very well could have qualified for it, and I’m pretty sure others would have agreed with me. He did a lot of research into the best methods by which universities, divided by thousands of miles, could work together on complex projects.
