Summer Seminar 2013

Re-imagining the International Narrative

BCCIE Summer Seminar 2013
June 23-26, 2013
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort Hotel
Whistler, BC

BCCIE will host Summer Seminar in beautiful Whistler, British Columbia (BC) from June 23-26, 2013. This year’s theme is Re-imagining the International Narrative. The 2013 conference theme invites leaders and practitioners in the field of international education to consider their own narrative of international education in our present, dynamic times. What is the story that we will tell of international education and its impact in BC? How will we re-imagine that story in light of external forces at play both locally and globally?

Summer Seminar provides an essential platform for the growth of BC’s international education sector. BCCIE’s annual conference brings together over 250 participants from our province, from across Canada and from beyond our borders. The conference attracts senior leaders, researchers, practitioners, student service providers, administrators, government, NGOs, and students to explore these ideas with the aim of strengthening our work and making steps towards advancing outstanding leadership in the fields that comprise international education in BC.
