About the event
On December 10, at 4:00 PM, the ISSP was delighted to host a panel of experts to discuss the current status of higher education in Canada.
Societal and employer needs are evolving rapidly, and knowledge generation is taking place faster than ever before. This is pressuring higher education systems’ existing models of learning and training, which must become more flexible, interdisciplinary and problem-focused, and encourage students to engage in life-long learning. What are the main drivers prompting change? What are some of the new models of learning and training? What are the obstacles and opportunities? How is Canada positioned internationally on this front? Panel participants explored these questions from a variety of public, private, academic and civil society perspectives at the domestic and international levels.
