The Community Colleges for International Development (CCID) conference brings together people across sectors in education, non-profit organizations and governments from across the world, to share and explore best practices in International Education for a better world.
Especially during these times, learning from other education providers, and sharing about programs that have helped students in feeling supported, engaged and connected, provides opportunity for inspiration as we continue to exist and evolve in virtual spaces.
At this year’s 45th annual conference, Stephanie Byer and Ayesha Amin, from the Global Learning and Strategic Initiatives Team at FSCS, along with Rebecca Trautwein of Humber Global, co-presented Connecting the Virtual Campus: Lessons Learned from Virtual Peer Mentoring Programming, on the value of co-curricular programming for international student success, from the first cohort of the FSCS International Peer Mentorship Program. The presentation covered the context that led to the development of the program, the framework and student expectations, outcomes, feedback and lessons learned for cohort 2.
