Title: Exploring Collaborative Opportunities with the DuShu Lake Consortium, Suzhou Education Innovation District, Suzhou Industrial Park, China

Date: Monday, September 21, 2015: 8:30 – 9:30 pm Eastern

 

(Note, the webinar takes place in the evening to accommodate our colleagues in China)

 

Our twenty-first century global challenges demand global preparation for our students, and this preparation is increasingly being demanded by national, regional and institutional leaders. However, the cost to individual institutions of launching global recruitment, globalized curriculum and global learning and research opportunities is often prohibitive. How might existing consortia “do” globalization collaboratively?  

 

The Association of Collaborative Leadership (ACL) recently signed a memorandum of agreement with the Dushu Lake Consortium (China) to explore and advance collaborative educational cooperation.  The proposal confirms our shared interest in facilitating partnership relations to advance faculty and student exchange, student recruitment, academic conferences or seminars to expand international cooperation and cultural and academic exchanges. 

 

What opportunities exist as a result of this partnership agreement for ACL members and their member colleges and institutions? What opportunities would members like to see as we explore discussions with DuShu Lake Consortium?

 

Meet Allison Chenqian Zhu and Leah He from the DuShu Lake Consortium and learn more about opportunities for involvement with their organization. Learn from Rene Yang how consortium has developed collaborative relationships over time in China and other global settings.

 

ACL is specifically interested in learning how you would like to leverage ACL international partnerships for your organization so that we can better serve you.  Please come prepared with questions and interests for this interactive conversation. This is the first in a series of conversations with Allison and Leah. We look forward to your participation.
