Supporting All Learners through Inclusive Post-Secondary Education

Adult learners with significant learning challenges, cognitive and developmental disabilities, and acquired brain injuries have more support than ever before to help them obtain a post-secondary education (PSE) credential. Thanks to specialized inclusive education programs offered by Canadian colleges and universities, these learners can gain academic, employment, and personal supports to help them achieve their goals. Once largely excluded from PSE and employment, these individuals are benefiting from programs that including curriculum modifications, tailored learning services, and supported community work placements.

Join us in examining what inclusive education means for Canadian PSE. We will discuss how inclusive PSE programs are designed and delivered, what goes into operating a successful inclusive education program, and what the benefits are for learners, communities, employers, and PSE.

International Student Attraction in the Era of Brexit and Trump

Recent political developments in the U.K. and U.S. bring into question whether those countries will continue to appeal to international students. Some argue that Brexit, changes to U.K. immigration policies, and Trump’s rhetoric will benefit competitor nations such as Canada, who also look to attract international students.

However, while politics has a major influence on the decision making of international students, other factors also play a role. Uri Carnat of IDP Education provides an overview of these factors and how they are currently impacting the international student landscape.

Uri looks at the latest international student statistics, focusing on Canada, the U.K., U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. In comparison with these countries, what are Canada’s advantages, and where is it falling short? How can Canada address its shortcomings?

Uri also provides insights on key international student source countries and how these developments will impact Canada.

Celebrating Learning in the Community: Bringing Higher Education Down from the Tower

Institutions of higher education and municipalities sometimes face challenges in connecting with one another. Complex socio-political and geographic divisions can make this disjunction difficult to overcome, but communities and post-secondary institutions are realizing the value of bridging this divide.

The Burnaby Festival of Learning launched in May 2016 with the intention of strengthening connections between the local community and a major post-secondary institution. Jointly led by Simon Fraser University and the City of Burnaby, the week-long festival offered free educational events across the city, engaging Burnaby residents of all backgrounds in the celebration of lifelong learning. At the same time, the Festival created new networks between municipal leadership, university leadership, municipal and university departments, the local public library system, and the local school district.

The Learning Performance Index Webinar: Building Strong Workplace Learning Environments

Learning in Canadian organizations is declining. Year over year, the amount of money spent per employee on learning and development decreases. Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations to understand where to focus their learning resources to obtain the greatest value for their investment.

The Conference Board of Canada has developed The Learning Performance Index (LPI), a proprietary organizational assessment tool designed to help organizations identify strengths and opportunities for enhancing workplace learning environments.

The LPI is comprised of four distinct areas or learning pillars—vision, knowledge management, organizational learning culture, and learning dynamics. Each pillar is instrumental in affecting an organization’s learning environment, and each can affect specific outcomes different from others.
