“The Info-Fair is a ‘one-stop shop’ for everything related to international education, whether it’s a student thinking about studying abroad or a teacher contemplating a teaching exchange.”

- Kathy Scheepers, OCENET International Education Coordinator

Yes, everyone is invited! You are invited - students, parents, educators and exhibitors - to participate in OCENET’s Second Annual International Education Info-Fair, taking place at the Albert Street Education Centre , 440 Albert St. from 10 a.m.-2 p.m on Saturday, April 25, 2015.

Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success with over 250 attendees, and this year aims to be even bigger with a larger number of exhibitors and a wider range of presentations...and it’s all free of charge. According to OCENET International Education Coordinator and lead organizer of the Info-Fair, Kathy Scheepers, this year’s event will again include over 30 exhibitors in the “Hall of International Opportunities’ and 12 information packed workshops on international education topics, and will also include the following:

  • More focus on pathways, including postsecondary
  • More emphasis upon all students from K-12
  • More teacher engagement with many local educators sharing their expertise and personal experience
  • More expert panel discussions

There will be time to speak one-on-one with representatives from various international education organizations. For example, The Education Foundation of Ottawa will be there to provide information about the new student and teacher bursaries for international learning. Carleton University will be there to inform everyone about their new and popular Bachelor of Global and International Studies degree program. Canadian government agencies, foreign embassies and NGOs will be on hand and many will have informational materials to distribute, such as maps and brochures. Several different panel discussions and presentations on student exchanges, summer study abroad and Homestay will let both students and parents know what to expect. Educators can learn about teaching overseas, and following a panel discussion, they can meet individually with teachers who have taught internationally. In addition, there will be panel discussions on practical ways in which schools can initiate exciting and innovative international experiential learning in their classrooms.

This year’s Info-Fair is not to be missed as there is something of interest for everyone in the educational community.
