Higher Education in Transformation Symposium

Emerging from the ongoing discussion and debate regarding the future landscape of Irish higher education, the inaugural Ireland-Canada symposium was held in the spring of 2015.

The symposium took place over three days and comprised of one day of workshops and a two-day conference designed to attract educators across the seven organizing institutions and beyond.
