The 2018 MAESD Policy Research Symposium
Responsive Government Policy for the Future
The Symposium will take place at 900 Bay Street, Macdonald Block, 2nd Floor, Ontario Room on February 20, 2018 from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm.
MAESD’s Policy Research Symposium is now in its third year and will explore applied and academic research that leads to the development of policy directions for the higher education sector. Guided by the Premier’s 2016 Mandate Letter and current Ministry policy development, the Symposium will delve into the following themes:
- Building a Highly-Skilled Workforce
- Access to Postsecondary Education
- Enabling Technologies
- Creating Indigenous Institutes
- The Talent Pipeline
- Developing Digital Policy
The Symposium will explore some of the most pressing issues facing the postsecondary and labour market sectors today, including the way that government should respond to the needs of citizens in an ever-changing digital landscape. The Symposium will host researchers funded by the Ministry’s Ontario Human Capital Research and Innovation Fund (OHCRIF), policy-makers, academics and leading experts.
The agenda for this event will be posted shortly. If you have any questions, please contact Ciara Hart in the Information Management and Strategy Branch.
We hope you can join us for this exciting Symposium!
