IR PLC Session on International Partnership Assessment – Part II

23 septembre 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Join the International Relations Professional Learning Community in the second part of this discussion on best practices and lessons learned in the creation and implementation of international partnership assessment tools.

We will continue the discussion from Part I of this series and see how International Relations colleagues across Canada are facing the challenges around the implementation of these tools, and what is holding them back from putting such tools in place.

Following on from the strong interest from Part I, Andrea Delgado Morrow from the University of Calgary and Suhair Deeb from Ryerson University will take us through their assessment models International Partnership Assessment Rating Index (IPARI) and International Partnership Assessment Tool (IPAT) respectively and discuss how their institutions are using these tools in practice.

As part of the session, participants will be able to discuss barriers and challenges, brainstorm solutions, identify opportunities, and determine a path forward in embarking upon this often daunting task. Colleagues will be able to share with their counterparts across Canada different strategies to overcome these barriers and hear other success stories.
