February 1, 2011

The Globe and Mail has launched a new monthly series called "Leading Thinkers," giving leading thinkers the opportunity to present ideas on a number of topics to a broader audience. The first issue explored is education, specifically the battle for the brightest minds. This month's crop of leading thinkers, including UBC president Stephen Toope and Governor-General and former uWaterloo president David Johnston, discuss the globalization of education, Canada's position in the global brain market, the country's competitiveness attracting Asian students, and how international students change dynamics on Canadian campuses. The series includes several interviews with foreign students studying in Canada, getting their perspective on the globalization of education. Leading Thinkers -- Brightest Minds
