Understanding the Relationship Between Critical Thinking Skills and Labour Market Outcomes

Understanding the Relationship Between Critical Thinking Skills and Labour Market Outcomes

The first webinar in this series will be held on February 22, 2018, and will highlight a study from the Postsecondary and Workplace Skills (PAWS) Project, entitled Understanding the Relationship Between Critical Thinking Skills and Labour Market Outcomes. Undertaken by the University of Ottawa’s Education Policy Research Initiative with funding from ESDC and the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario, this study measured the critical thinking skills of students at two large post-secondary education institutions in Ontario (one college and one university), and identified the relationship between skill levels and a range of student and program characteristics and outcomes.

To learn more about the details and results of this PAWS study, you are invited to register to this webinar by writing to: NC-ICSE-CIES-GD@hrsdc-rhdcc.gc.ca.

While the presentation will only be given in English, please feel free to ask questions in the official language of your choice. The presenter will be able to respond in either one of the official languages.

Please note that there are a limited number of connections for each webinar so registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage organizations/teams to gather together in a boardroom or other central location to allow for greater participation.

Instructions for logging into the webinar will be sent after reception of your registration request.

You are also invited to forward this invitation to any of your colleagues who may be interested in receiving more information on ESDC’s CLMI-related activities.

We look forward to having you join us!
