As NAFSA Executive Director and CEO Esther D. Brimmer, DPhil,
notes in her From the Desk of column in this issue of IE, technology
is changing the world of work and the demands placed on international education at an accelerated rate. Embracing opportunities
offered by technological change, in this issue we focus on the ways
in which international education professionals and students are
capitalizing on technology at home and abroad.
"Using Technology to Reach Students Where They Are" highlights best practices for integrating tech-based communication
tools that help ensure that colleges and universities achieve their
enrollment, internationalization, and other goals.
"Global Connections, Staying Local: Online International
Education Continues to Grow As an Alternative-and Support-
to In-Person Study" examines the current state of online-based
international education and explores the ramifications of this type
of learning.
"Getting to Work: How Career Services Offices Are Helping
Students Launch Their Careers" looks at best practices that help
international graduates get a successful start on their professional
futures and breaks down new regulatory hurdles.
"How Assessment Approaches Measure Up" explores how
institutions are not only assessing the language proficiency of
international students, but also helping students in their adjustment to an unfamiliar educational system and culture.
In addition, specific practical subject areas covered in this issue
include:
-Education Abroad: An examination of the proliferation and evolution of overseas internships.
-International Student Affairs: A look at the challenge for international students of academic probation, and ways to increase the
odds that international students rebound successfully.
-International Enrollment: An exploration of how to work with
alumni to boost international student recruitment efforts.
-International Education Leadership: A summary of best practices
for anticipating and adapting to on-campus changes designed to
help leaders weather the storms that will inevitably buffet their
offices.
Entering an age of acceleration where "how do we keep up?" is
becoming the question of the day-thanks to many of the technologies in use today that didn't exist a decade ago-the world is more
interconnected than it ever has been. But most important is the
work of dedicated individuals like yourselves in the field of international education who continue to embrace these new technologies,
finding better ways to help students navigate their way forward in
an increasingly globalized world. n
