Deadline for submission: November 16, 2015
IIENetworker, the international education magazine of the Institute of International Education (IIE), invites submissions for publication in its upcoming Spring 2016 issue. The theme of the spring issue of IIENetworker will be: "Faculty-Driven Internationalization."
As internationalization becomes an increasing priority for higher education worldwide, the involvement of faculty is essential. Faculty may engage in internationalization efforts in a wide variety of ways, including leading short-term student international experiences; initiating international research collaborations and publications; creating internationally-focused curricula; participating in programs abroad such as faculty exchanges, training programs, etc.; employing new technology (virtual, social media); and incorporating their own international experiences into their teaching.
This issue of the IIENetworker will examine innovative ways that colleges, universities, governments, and other organizations encourage and support faculty engagement in internationalization. Proposed articles should focus on mechanisms such as: grants and funding opportunities, tenure policies, administrative and support structures, strategic planning, government policies that support cross-border collaboration, host institution policies to attract international faculty, and policies and programs for retaining faculty after an international experience, e.g. re-entry programs.
We are particularly interested in presenting a variety of perspectives from around the globe. Articles should be approximately 1200 words.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to submit. The submission deadline for completed articles is November 16, 2015. You will be notified as soon as a publication decision is made.
