Live Webinar:

Supporting All Learners through Inclusive Post-Secondary Education

Hosted by The Conference Board of Canada

December 14, 2017 at 02:00 PM EST

Adult learners with significant learning challenges, cognitive and developmental disabilities, and acquired brain injuries have more support than ever before to help them obtain a post-secondary education (PSE) credential. Thanks to specialized inclusive education programs offered by Canadian colleges and universities, these learners can gain academic, employment, and personal supports to help them achieve their goals.

Join us as we examine what inclusive education means for Canadian PSE. We will discuss how inclusive PSE programs are designed and delivered, what goes into operating a successful inclusive education program, and what the benefits are for learners, communities, employers, and PSE.

Webinar Highlights

In this 60-minute session, we will discuss:

How inclusive PSE programs measure and realize success;
Examples of unique inclusive programs that benefit students and local communities;
Lessons from inclusive PSE programs for improving access to PSE and employment for all Canadians.
