Global impact, local outcomes

International education has seen phenomenal growth over the last 40 years. According to the OECD, the number of internationally mobile students worldwide has risen from almost 1 million in 1975 to more than 4.5 million in 2015. 

However, mobility is evolving, along with changing student needs, emerging modes of learning and an increasing focus on outcomes. In this context, how do we continue to advocate for and articulate the benefits of international education – at a global, community and personal level?

This year’s IEAA Research Roundtable will examine the global impact and local outcomes of international education. We will look at outcomes from a number of perspectives, including:

  • Economic and societal outcomes
  • Outcomes of policy on individuals
  • Graduate outcomes.

We will also hear from emerging researchers in international education, and discuss the latest research and findings.

3MT Challenge

Can you present your thesis in three minutes or less? IEAA is calling on PhD and masters by research candidates currently undertaking research in international education to present a summary of their work as part of our three-minute thesis (3MT) challenge at this year's IEAA Research Roundtable.

This is a great opportunity for emerging researchers to:

  • Present your thesis to a specialist audience
  • Distill your research into one PowerPoint slide and
  • Gain feedback from some of Australia's pre-eminent researchers in international education.

Roundtable registration, flights within Australia and one night's accommodation will be covered by IEAA.

Expressions of interest close on Friday 7 September.

As a model of using research to inform policy and practice, IEAA’s Research Roundtable has established itself as a must attend event. It is led by IEAA, in conjunction with the Australian International Education Conference (AIEC), and has been held annually since 2009.

The roundtable caters to the interests and needs of established and new researchers – including current research students – across a wide range of disciplines. It will also appeal to education sector practitioners and research users, government policy makers as well as research funding and commissioning agencies.
