Evaluating Safe and Secure International Student Placements using IT Tools (E/SI)

April 30, 2024 15:45 - 16:45 Macleod Hall BView map

Institutions of higher Education need to stay resilient to the ever-changing reality of international exchanges and are pivoting as legal obligations towards interns are evolving and are raising valid questions about safety and security of work environments. We have created an innovative tool that evaluates the risk management process and includes a procedure that can be used for any country abroad, tested by a consortium of Cegeps in Quebec. This tool was funded by a grant from Colleges and Institutes Canada and we are more than eager to engage and share our results. Presenters will offer their perspective of how they can meet the safety and security requirements of thier regional reality and how their coordinated approach and IT solution can be used at national, regional and international levels.

Stream: Cultivating Global Collaborations

Geared towards international education experts and practitioners, this stream will explore how international partnerships, fostering student mobility, pioneering innovations in international assistance, and fostering applied research collaborations are shaping a workforce that is not just ready for the future but is designed to thrive in it.
