In a rapidly globalized society, higher education institutions are starting to see the value in collaborating and partnering with their foreign counterparts to better improve their services and research.
Building a reputation abroad can be quite difficult, which is why institutions like the Advancement of International Education (AAIE) were created. AAIE helps bridge the cultural gap and create an open-minded space for educators and industry heads to learn from each other.
Be involved in the latest developments in international education and discover how AAIE can give you better access to networks from around the world.
What Is AAIE?
Starting out as a project to better understand overseas schools, AAIE has now evolved into an association dedicated to the advancement of international education and serves as a leader of higher education institutions worldwide. The association assembles education leaders and key officials in shaping the future of international education through shared institutional strategies.
This global community provides a forum to exchange ideas on the development of school leadership and international education through participation and dialogue with associations and educational institutions around the world. It also seeks to influence public policy to adapt to its international community.
AAIE aims to tackle challenges and issues in international education in order to find sustainable solutions for everyone involved.
What They Do
International organizations such as the AAIE influence education and public policies on a global scale. As in other sectors such as economics, health and the environment, the reforms needed by the education sector are suggested by international bodies and influenced by socio-political forces.
The AAIE helps identify factors that need reforms, draws attention to issues that need to be discussed and aspects that need to be improved, and develops initiatives and new ideas for the betterment of international education.
One of the major roles of AAIE is to discuss the challenges and issues that arise in the international education sector. This is done through hosting numerous global seminars and conferences where industry leaders can share their experiences and concerns in the sector. Their leadership seminars pave the way for institutions to break through to the global scene.
Becoming part of a global organization like AAIE is a step in the right direction to better improve your institution’s facilities and teaching methods to accommodate and serve the needs of foreign students.
