205: PANEL: Giving Students the Tools to Succeed in a Global Workforce

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel will discuss how international experiences contribute to the personal and professional development of young Canadians and, consequently, equip them for today’s global workforce. As “internationalizing” education continues to include not only inbound movement – ie, the recruitment and retention of international students – but also outbound mobility, we find ourselves in this new space navigating how best to support domestic students in gaining global skills and competencies.

Learning Outcomes:
  • The existing landscape of outbound mobility in the Canadian context;
  • Steps Canada needs to take to keep up with internationalization efforts in other countries;
  • How to support a shift where going abroad is a natural step in a young Canadian’s career path
