Canada has fallen behind or is at risk of falling behind other countries in education and training if we don’t get our act together. That was a common theme at two conferences last week in Toronto, one hosted by The Conference Board of Canada, which is developing a Centre for Skills and Post-Secondary Education, and the other by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario, a provincial agency that does research and offers policy advice to government.
“There is a fairly strong economic relationship between the two countries, and that makes it important for governments to pay attention” during a disaster like the typhoon, said Diana MacKay, director of education and immigration with the Conference Board of Canada.
Schools have been under pressure from students, governments and businesses to revitalize teaching, help address Canada's perceived skills gap and ensure graduates are ready for jobs. The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario and the Conference Board of Canada led a range of discussions. These three ideas could shape higher education in the coming years.
