Interested in presenting a poster?

The forum offers an excellent opportunity to share programs or best practices at your campus with your colleagues! We want to learn from you and hear about your global learning successes. You are invited to present a poster that highlights best practices, collaborations with global partners, assessment tools to measure outcomes etc., and may be replicated at other institutions. Please visit the poster submission and presentation guidelines for details. 


FIU’s 2020 Global Learning Forum really helped me see the potential at my campus. I think your 3 bullets of Awareness, Perspectives and Engagement are actually better than the Value Rubric itself as theoretical frames. The 2021 Forum was really good on assessment. I referred to my notes all the time in getting my program approved. So your example has been inspiring!!

Internationalization at home has a significant role in building the Internationalization Framework at the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT). The global learning forum provided me with numerous ideas about how to facilitate students’ global experiences during a global pandemic.
