Insightrix Research Director, Lang McGilp, to speak at CIRPA Conference in Calgary on Monday, October 22

Lang will be giving a presentation relating to specific research done for Saskatchewan Polytechnic in regard to enhancing the experience of international and permanent resident students.

In his presentation at the 2018 CIRPA Conference, Effective Integration of International and Permanent Resident Students, Lang will describe some of the insight gained from a recent project with Saskatchewan Polytechnic aimed at enhancing the experience of international and permanent resident students.

During the project, Insightrix conducted in-person in-depth interviews with identified international and permanent resident students attending Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses throughout the province to understand the challenges these students face.

The presentation will focus on student interviews and identify challenges students face from the student perspective, from initial arrival to integration and the institutional supports required to make their transition successful.

Insightrix is proud to be a Silver sponsor of the 2018 CIRPA Conference.

The presentation will be held at 11:40 AM in the South Ballroom of Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire in Calgary, Alberta on October 22.
