Media Advisory - Governor General to Open CBIE 50th Annual Conference

OTTAWA, Nov. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada and patron of the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE), will deliver the opening keynote address and engage in a question period at the 2016 CBIE Annual Conference at The Westin Ottawa, on Monday, November 14, 2016, at 8:30 a.m.

This year's conference theme, Internationalization for All, looks at how we can reframe internationalization to engage all members of the learning community, broadening the understanding of internationalization beyond the more traditional association with mobility, research collaboration and recruitment. The conference will also highlight internationalization at home, and how it can be integrated into elements and activities in the classroom, on campus, in schools and within communities.
