This year’s programme will include a plenary presentation from Francisco Marmolejo, coordinator of higher education at the World Bank and roundtable discussions from leaders at UNESCO’s International Institution for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (IESALC) and the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE).
Key themes will centre around accreditation, financing, international agendas and the impact of MOOCs on internationalisation.
The conference will also focus on the expanding role Mexico plays in both inbound and outbound student mobility.
The event will be preceded by the third annual Meeting of the Space for Women Leaders in Higher Education in the Americas (EMULIES) that will discuss the role of women and gender equality in the sector.
CAIE was found in 2009 by the CBIE, the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC), and the Inter-American Organisation for Higher Education (OUI-IOHE), with the support of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFATD). Previous conferences have been held in Brazil and Canada.
