Although research is the backbone of HEQCO’s work, that type of work cannot exist in a vacuum. As a provincial government agency focused on sector improvement, HEQCO recognizes the importance of cross-sector collaboration and knowledge sharing and hosting events is one way of cultivating those types of relationships.
From 2011 to 2018, HEQCO hosted an annual conference that brought together representatives from colleges and universities, the K-12 sector, different levels of government and community organizations. Through programs of interactive workshops, presentations and keynote speakers, our conferences served as a way to share knowledge and best practices while fostering connections across the sector.
HEQCO has also convened additional events to examine more specialized topics such as apprenticeship and the skilled trades, work integrated learning, student pathways to postsecondary education and the links between higher education and the labour market.
HEQCO will continue to seek out ways of fostering collaboration and connection between various stakeholders across the postsecondary and broader education spectrum.
