Welcome to the Center for Research on International Education (CRIE)
The Centre was set up in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University (SFU) to encourage and support research into internationalization and the ways it is changing the landscape of higher education in Canada and internationally. Despite the rapid expansion of international education around the world, there is a paucity of research and scholarly activity relating to those practices. This Centre offers a site for interdisciplinary inquiry into internationalization practices, for investigating curriculum and pedagogy from international perspectives, and for articulating academic rationales for internationalization that respond to rapidly changing global and local conditions. The Centre brings together researchers who are investigating international education and global issues and promotes national and international partnerships with other centres, institutes, groups and researchers dedicated to exploring internationalization of education. We hope our website will act as an important source of information and resources on research concerning internationalization of education at SFU and beyond.
