Alhambra To Forge New Partnership At London Conference

From The University of Texas at Austin:

In an effort to further extend teacher training and educational development to international markets, the Global Initiative for Education and Leadership at The University of Texas at Austin is helping to organize the Gulf Education Conference and Exhibition (GECE) on June 19-20 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.

In its third year, the GECE offers a special focus on education in the Middle East and North Africa. Founded by UTeach-Liberal Arts, the UT Global Initiative is a consortium of recognized training programs at The University of Texas at Austin that delivers high-quality teacher training, executive education and English as second language instruction. Partners include the Alhambra U.S. Chamber and the Aspen Institute’s Partners for a New Beginning program, as well as the university’s UTeach-Liberal Arts program, Human Dimensions of Organizations and the IC2 Institute.

“The UT Global Initiative leverages the enormous teacher training and educational development capacities of UT Austin to create and enhance educational opportunities around the world,” says Richard Flores, senior associate dean for the College of Liberal Arts and executive director of the UT Global Initiative. “The Middle East has been a significant focus for us and, by bringing so many key regional education players together, GECE was a natural partner.”
