Research in Colleges: Challenges and Opportunities
On Wednesday, September 30 the Centre for the Study of Canadian and International Higher Education at OISE joined with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU), and the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) to host a free, half-day research policy symposium. This event explored the development of research in colleges in Canada, Australia and England. It provided an opportunity for institutional leaders and practitioners, policy makers, funding bodies and government agencies to share experiences and learn from each other about how to develop and implement applied research. Each panel consisted of speakers from Canada, Australia and England. More information can be found here.
