In May 2021, HEQCO announced a call for proposals to create a consortium that would evaluate programs or interventions relating to the acquisition, development and/or articulation of transferable skills. Over the last two years, we have funded seven projects that sought to cultivate one or more in-demand, transferable skills such as numeracy, leadership, time management and civic engagement. The focus was on innovative education interventions that help students acquire, hone or articulate these types of skills.
Our final consortium meeting will be held on Thursday, May 18th, where each research team will present and discuss their projects. To wrap up the final meeting, we have invited Dr. Loleen Berdahl, Executive Director, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, Universities of Saskatchewan and Regina, to speak on skills development, articulation and assessment.
The meeting will be held in person at Colleges Ontario from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and we invite others to join us virtually. Please register through this link: https://forms.gle/BMTtRCZXmc48VceL7. Our registration is limited to 100 online attendees, on a first come first served basis.
We look forward to seeing you there!
