International Student Chapters Summit: A Collaborative Mapping of Education Beyond North America

This forum/open discussion asks - is now the right time for AMIA to go international? As of today, there are twelve student chapters, spread over two continents, four countries and too many different time zones. And yet, most of these programs are located in North America, and all but one are English-taught. 2020-21 has been a challenging time for everyone, including the educational community; but these challenges came with opportunities too, including a rapidly expanding cross-pollination of ideas and practices online. While we gradually come to terms with the idea of unplugging from Zoom, a growing number of newcomers are wondering how accessible AMIA will become to them in a post-pandemic world. This session, sponsored by the Education Committee, will open a conversation on how student chapters could increase mutual understanding and cooperation with their peers abroad. Join us in completing a map of education programs across the globe that are, soon will be, or once were part of the audiovisual heritage landscape, so we can collectively decide where to boldly go next!
