We know that BC has done an excellent job recruiting large numbers of international students to our province. What is perhaps less talked about is how educators in BC have impacted the broader field of international education through innovations in teaching and learning. BC’s unique approach to Interculturalizing has far reach through publishing and collaboration and is being noticed across Canada, in the US, South America, and Europe. In this session, we will highlight what is catching the attention of colleagues well beyond BC and to discuss how we can support a better understanding of these contributions to the field.
