The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) has launched Canada’s Education Abroad Lexicon. The resource is available online and consists of terms and definitions useful to those involved in international education. The lexicon was developed in consultation with educational institutions in Canada, through the use of a survey asking for agreement on certain definitions. New terms will be added to the resource in the future, as the CBIE hopes to create “Canada’s comprehensive and authoritative vocabulary for education abroad.” The terms currently included are meant to help institutions and governments develop new programs and track Canadian participation in education abroad.
