April 14, 2020 | 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. EDT

Over the past few weeks, international educators have had to quickly adjust and shift to a different environment to support their students and scholars and manage expectations due to the impact of COVID-19. This Town Hall will feature a public health expert and an IIE researcher alongside seasoned international educators. The speakers will reflect on public health trends that affect our work, current “triage” plans, and lessons learned. They will also share their thoughts on what’s next and helpful tips on managing future change. The Town Hall will conclude with a panel discussion.

Please join this live event open to the international education community.
