MSM To Host Webinar Discussing Pandemic

With COVID-19’s impact on institutions across Canada and all over the globe, higher education institutions relying on international students to diversify enrollments and revenues had to rethink their plans and strategies.


To provide more insights into this topic, M Square Media (MSM), through its education management arm MSM Higher Ed, will be hosting its first “Think-In Canada” webinar on November 9, 2021, 11 a.m. PDT. The theme for this online event is “Canadian Leadership & Innovation: Lessons in Higher Education during COVID-19.”


Thought leaders Ajay Patel, president of Vancouver Community College, British Columbia; Denise Amyot, president and CEO of Colleges and Institutes Canada and Don Mills, policy expert and former CEO and owner of Corporate Research Associates Inc; will share their experiences, lessons learned and future thinking around this theme. They will bring their institutional, association and policymaking perspectives into the breadth of the discussion. 


MSM Higher Ed president Donna Hooker, who has worked in the post secondary  education sector for over 30 years, will be moderating the event. 


“MSM’s Think-In web series is a fantastic means to connect, communicate, and collaborate with our different associates and partners in the higher education sector. By hosting this event online, we provide insights and context on the developments that are shaping international education and our communities to people across Canada and around the world,” said Hooker.


This virtual event aims to dive deeper into how COVID-19 has impacted higher education institutions (HEIs) in Canada in terms of priorities and decision-making. Using lessons from the pandemic period, the speakers will discuss how their experiences shaped plans for innovation partnerships and future decisions. They will share insights on practices around sustainability, education delivery, and campus growth and shed light on the link between institutions in international education and communities – how the two could work together to build local, provincial, and national capacity. 


This event is open to higher education officials and education agents. Interested participants may register for the webinar via this link:
