Open Meeting on Research in International Education

NAFSA: Association of International Educators Annual Conference

Minneapolis, Minnesota
Wednesday, May 30, 2007 ~ 1:45pm to 3:00pm
Convention Center, Auditorium 2
Chaired by David Comp,

The format for the open meeting on research will be that of two twenty minute dialogue “roundtable” sessions where
participants will choose from a variety of topics. Each roundtable will have an assigned moderator who will help facilitate
the dialogue and will take notes which the will be used to summarize the discussions. The roundtable summaries will be
incorporated into the Research/Scholarship network as a practice resource and/or network discussion starters. The goal will
be to have a minimum of five different topics for participants to choose from.

Potential table themes:

 Outcomes assessment in education abroad

 Where and how can I publish in the field?
 What are the research gaps and what are the future research needs?
 Research on international students in the U.S.
 Graduate students and mid-career professionals interested in conducting research
 Incorporating theory into practice
 Where do we go from here?

A very brief demographic survey will be distributed to roundtable participants.
