Expanding Horizons, Opening Minds

Inspiring Global Engagement

Horizons380As campuses have become more cosmopolitan, faculty research more international, and younger generations more globally connected, rates of study abroad have remained disappointingly low in many countries, including Canada.  Online, millennial youth effortlessly participate in a global world, but in sharp contrast, their academic and career ambitions are almost always tethered by geography.

Ken Steele is Canada’s leading higher education monitor and futurist. He co-founded Academica Group, created the Academica Top Ten, manages Eduvation Inc, co-authored Canada’s first book on enrolment management, and hosts a weekly webcast, Ten with Ken, that reaches thousands of subscribers on a dozen platforms. Ken brings his unique perspective and insight to a broad range of audiences, from faculty and instructors, boards and senior administration, to information technology staff, concerned parents, and Canada’s most powerful corporate CEOs.

In this fast-paced presentation, Ken Steele will explore the challenge of nurturing global ambitions in the mindset of the millennial generation, weaving together recent market research, best practices, and examples drawn from contemporary culture and marketing. The audience will get to contribute their own ideas in real time too, so be sure to bring a smartphone, tablet or laptop in order to access the online polls during the presentation.  We will collectively share the insights, inspiration, and motivation it will take to broaden the horizons of our students, and prepare them to engage with a global world.

Here are some relevant episodes of 10K, for a sense of Ken’s approach and as potential examples to share with participants in advance:
