The International Higher Education Teaching and Learning Association (HETL) and the Department of Postsecondary Teaching and Learning at the University of Minnesota invite you to attend the 2015 International HETL – PsTL Conference, to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. HETL and PsTL invite you to submit your conference presentation proposal. At the conference, you will have the opportunity to explore new developments in “learning without borders” with your colleagues from around the world.
The focus of the conference is to support faculty development and institutional capacity to enact policies, supportive structures, and pedagogy that support mindful intercultural learning for various stakeholder-participants in authentic sites of practice.
Our theme, Learning without Borders, invites a wide range of research and perspectives on learning-centered teaching practices, curricular activities, and assessment methods related to global learning and engagement. Possible topics include:
• Global citizenship • Diversity and equity • Intercultural pedagogy • Internationalization of the curriculum • Mobile learning technologies
