"Internationalization is the process of integrating an international dimension into the teaching / learning, research and service functions of a college."
Our Internationalization Strategy includes a commitment to provide professional development opportunities for staff to support further enrichment of the curriculum. There are some activities / countries that the College pro-actively engages in because they are in alignment with a number of criteria of the Strategy (e.g. is a country of focus, has a link to work being done by groups in our community, is linked to Departmental strategies, etc). There are other opportunities that are less of a priority because they meet fewer of our criteria but might be of interest to individuals. Participating in these activities may qualify as professional development but in all cases you and your manager must be in agreement to ensure the timing is right.
1. College International Opportunities
At times the College has opportunities for staff to participate in International initiatives. These could involve participating in an international project or on a Needs Assessment Mission or Recruitment Fair. These activities are aligned with the College's Internationalization Strategy.
The International Centre can provide you with more information and would be happy to meet with you and/or your manager to discuss how an opportunity fits into the College's Internationalization Strategy.
- There are no College International Opportunities available at this time.
2. Other International Opportunities
The following opportunities are not directly aligned with the College's Internationalization Strategy but are provided as a service for individuals who wish to build their international experience.
In general the College is not in a position to provide in depth support for these initiatives, but the degree to which an opportunity is aligned with the College's Internationalization Strategy would increase the potential for support from the George Brown International.
As part of the 2005/06 business plan, the College's priority countries include:
China, Korea, India, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Russia, Mexico, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Barbados, Bermuda, Jamaica and Trinidad / Tobago.
