Durham College strengthens ties with Irish institutions

Durham College

from the press release:

“Expanded international opportunities for student exchange and research collaboration in Ireland are on the horizon following the signing of a new agreement by the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Durham College (DC) and the Technological University for Dublin Alliance.

UOIT and DC jointly hosted their counterparts from Ireland to explore new ways of improving all aspects of higher education – from curriculum and pedagogy to student experience supports. The Higher Education in Transformation Symposium (HEIT) spawned robust discussion between academic leaders, as well as Canadian and Irish government officials. Among the dozens of speakers at HEIT was Jim Kelly, Ireland’s Ambassador to Canada.

Key topics of discussion at HEIT included:

  • Creating new higher education programs to meet 21st-century demands.
  • Keeping up with rapid technological changes to ensure students receive a cutting-edge education.
  • Building on unique, hybrid post-secondary relationships, such as the UOIT-DC example as well as Ireland’s new trilateral Technological University for Dublin Alliance.”
