Education stakeholders, business partners and government officials will have the opportunity to discuss the key elements in providing students with a broader international perspective during the 2010 Governor’s Global Education Conference (GEC).
The conference will take place Tuesday, Feb. 9 at the Wes Watkins Center at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. The deadline to register is Jan. 29, and space is limited.
Since 2007, GEC has served more than 500 K-16 education stakeholders, business partners and legislative constituents. This year’s conference will feature globally versed keynote speakers; breakout sessions specific to higher education, K-12 and workforce; and great opportunities to network with colleagues.
In the morning, participants will hear a panel discussion on linking global education activities across Oklahoma. During the breakout sessions, participants will learn about designing innovative intercultural experiences inside American higher education institutions; higher education and the knowledge economy of the United Kingdom; developing an undergraduate international dual degree program; and utilizing study abroad programs as a freshman bonding experience.
Participants will also learn about Creativity World Forum: Bringing Ideas Together, which will take place during November 2010 in Oklahoma City.
The conference fee is $50 for regular participants, $30 for presenters and $15 for students. Online registration is available at www.okhighered.org/okglobaled.
