Reimagining postsecondary education in the digital world: Opinion

October 27, 2020
Postsecondary education needs to be reimagined as Canadians switch to working and learning online, writes Rick Huijbregts, George Brown College’s VP Strategy & Innovation. The author writes that many questions arise about how institutions can continue to effectively train students in a digital space and says that the answer is “a multi-faceted, multi-stakeholder approach that includes support from industry, government and the tech sector.” Huijbregts says that working together is vital in the reimagination and redefinition of postsecondary education, and that this partnership mindset is also relevant to teaching and learning. Institutions must learn from evaluations to ensure students’ needs are met, and provide students with personalized and accessible learning experiences. “Education can, and must, evolve, just as the labour market has evolved,” said Huijbregts. iPolitics (National)
