Register Now for 2016 IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad

The 2016 IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad will take place on October 23-25, 2016 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The 2016 IIE Summit will bring education, government and business leaders and journalists together for action-oriented discussion on how to ensure international experience is a key part of a 21st century education and make study abroad opportunities available to all. The 2016 IIE Summit will continue to push the envelope to change how we think and "do" study abroad as we work together to achieve our ambitious goal.

Building on last year’s popular interactive sessions and networking opportunities, the 2016 IIE Summit aims to go beyond the traditional panel format – to engage participants in hands-on learning and outside-of-the-box thinking – by exploring innovative action plans, designing an effective strategy, exchanging tools and experimenting with new approaches to further advance our mutual goal.

The early bird rate is available until May 1. For more information and to register, visit: https://www.daad.org/ambassadors">

The Collaborative Research Centre/ SFB 1150 “Cultures of Decision-Making” examines the social practice und the cultural conditions of decision-making in a historical-comparative and interdisciplinary perspective from the Middle Ages to the present. It addresses decision-making as a form of social action which is neither self-evident nor invariant, but which is based on changing social and cultural conditions.
