The American Institute in Taiwan will participate in International Education Week to promote international education and educational exchange. From November 12 - 16, 2007, the EducationUSA Advising Centers in Taiwan, the AIT American Cultural Center in Taipei, and the American Corner in Taichung will jointly sponsor events for students, scholars, and professionals. The week's activities will involve current U.S. Fulbright scholars and recent graduates of U.S. universities.
International Education Week aims to attract future leaders from around the world to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the U.S. The theme for this year's International Education Week is International Education: Fostering Global Citizenship and Respect.
"AIT and the EducationUSA Taiwan team are celebrating International Education Week with many interesting activities across Taiwan. Taiwan students and their parents often tell me that the U.S. is their number one choice for study abroad," said AIT American Cultural Center Director Nicholas Papp. He encourages Taiwan students and their parents to participate in the week's activities and to log on to the EducationUSA Taiwan website - the number one source of information about opportunities for study in the U.S. - at www.EducationUSA.org.tw.
The week's activities will include:
- student-centered lectures focusing on Study in the USA, including special talks for undergraduate and graduate students in Taipei and Taichung;
- radio interviews on ICRT Radio by EducationUSA advisers, AIT officers, and experts on international education;
- a digital video conference, "Internationalizing the University Campus: Sharing Experiences and Best Practices," featuring university and education officials from Taiwan and the U.S.; and
- an interactive web chat, "How to Succeed in Applying for Study in the U.S."
