Spotlight 2021: Reimagining the role of CE in Higher Education 

In recent history, post-secondary institutions have not seen continuing education(CE) departments as imperative to their core purpose. On many campuses, continuing education units serve as outlying academic or non-academic departments. However, CE has re-emerged as central to the future of higher education due to the new economic realities, social issues, the global pandemic, increased demands for learner pathways, emerging micro-credentials, and changing industry trends.  

Shifting student needs and a recovering economy have the higher education sector standing on shifting ground. At the same time, post-secondary institutions are challenged to implement meaningful anti-racist, decolonizing, Indigenized, and equity, diversity, and inclusion-supporting curriculum. Consequently, universities are expected to be more responsive than ever before. In responding to this challenge, CE has much to offer including processes grounded in real-world realities and needs; a greater flexibility than the core university programming; and deep connections within communities and groups that comprise the fabric of Canadian society. Continuing education is a living lab where strategies that work are used to meet the needs of learners and employers in timely and practical ways.
