You are invited to participate in the 2020 Phi Beta Delta National Conference by submitting a paper, session (e.g., a panel), or poster abstract under the theme, “International Education in Our Changing World”. A survey of our membership revealed that members were interested in alternative formats for our annual conferences. After thorough discussion, the Board voted unanimously at its November meeting to sponsor the 2020 conference FULLY ONLINE. Access to web conferencing technologies and cost savings to participants were major considerations in that decision. Participants will present their papers and posters online and engage with a broadly dispersed audience via Zoom (videoconferencing and screen sharing technology).
We invite you to explore new and innovative avenues of global teaching and learning as informed by theory, research, and practice. Please submit proposals that reflect the best practices in your field as they relate to international education.
PBD welcomes proposals from a diverse array of academic disciplines, presenters, and global perspectives, and from a variety of institutional and organizational types. Proposals with presenters from a single institution or multiple institutions will be considered equally. Specific focus areas have been identified for the 2020 conference (see below).
For the 2020 conference, the PBD Board seeks to showcase theory, research, and practice that exemplify innovative approaches to international education in a changing world. You are invited to submit proposals appropriate to the focus areas listed below.
