TOPIC: “Work-Integrated Learning: A Strategy for Future Proofing the Global Economy”
PRESENTER: Dr. Norah McRae, University of Waterloo
DATE: Thursday, November 14th @ 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST
DESCRIPTION: The world we live and work in is changing. Our economy and society will be driven by a new kind of industry; one where the internet of things and cyber-physical systems will shape the personal and professional lives of the next generation. Work-integrated learning (WIL) is at the very heart of Co-operative and Experiential Education at the University of Waterloo. In this presentation, Dr. Norah McRae looks at how the quality, intensity, and impact of WIL can provide a strategy for future proofing the global economy in an evolving social landscape.
