  • MARJ -- Introduce speakers, provide brief overview of our purpose Today we’d like to accomplish these goals: --discuss ways to create collaborations that enhance authentic global understandings in our students --engage students studying engineering, computer science, technical communication or business --share international experiences thus far and suggest projects for the coming academic year --invite audience to join discussion at the end and contribute ideas for collaborations, projects, student and faculty exchanges, etc.
  • TOM – The mission of the Center for Language Research is &amp;quot;to contribute to the development of professionals in computer science, computer engineering, and related fields through the research and teaching of successful language use in academic and workplace contexts.&amp;quot;  To accomplish this mission, we seek to include as part of our university training some innovative international encounters that will enable students to make rapid progress in professional thinking, behavior and communication with extraordinarily small but effective investments in time, money, and effort. Anyone can create technically savvy, time-consuming projects these days, but vague goals and poor planning yield minimal transformational results.  The challenge for professional educators now is to pioneer new kinds of innovative, global experiences that can generate impressive benefits with the fewest possible resources. My part in today&apos;s panel presentation will be to clarify the requirements for such new international experiences.  
  • TOM— ((Probably detail specifics about your intent, efforts, progs., etc.))
  • JULIA— (your focus and content here)
  • JULIA-- (Insert (or send) photos for this page, and list main points for talking)

  • HELEN— {{Photos from Mercer &amp; Karlsruhe, maybe students??}} [I thought maybe to discuss students’ own pushto study abroad –Bond, London, Spain, etc.—mission projects, study tours like Josh in Italy; engineers at Swansea. How you estab. Relations with Karlsruhe, future plans?? Whatever you like]
  • YVONNE— [Insert your main topics and focus here]
  • YVONNE-- [insert photos for background while you talk; I pulled these from your U web site, but you probably have better ones and some with people in them]
  • MARJ—moderate; take notes on Qs, topics, ideas; suggest exchange of business cards
