The International Education Association of South Africa invites you to its 24th Conference, which will be held online from 24 to 26 August 2022. This year’s theme is “Reigniting and Reimagining Internationalisation of Higher Education in South Africa”.
After four waves of the COVID-19 pandemic considerably disrupted university activities at all levels, South African higher education institutions (HEIs) resumed a degree of relative normalcy in early 2022, most notably through the return to face-to-face engagements. We are taking this opportunity to reflect on the disruptions South African higher education has experienced over the past two years and how institutions are responding to their ever changing environments, particularly in the context of their internationalisation activities.
The 24th IEASA Conference will bring together internationalisation leaders, experts, academics and researchers, professional practitioners, educators, students and innovators as well as organisations and individuals interested in higher education internationalisation to share thoughts, research findings, lived experiences and good practice examples.
Join us to explore how what we have experienced and learnt during the pandemic can help us reignite and reimagine internationalisation of higher education in South Africa and elsewhere.
