Organizational effectiveness and mission orientations of two-year colleges   http://www.springerlink.com/app/home/contribution.asp?wasp=37344e6ef428462d94b75436545cf9c4&referrer  Site Reviews(0)
This study investigated the applicability of Cameron''s (1978, 1983) nine dimensions of organizational effectiveness in a nationally representative sample of two-year colleges and examined differences in those dimensions for colleges that had decidedly different mission orientations. The results strongly support the applicability of these nine dimensions of organizational effectiveness in two-year colleges and indicate that the effectiveness of these institutions varies significantly depending on their mission orientation. From a global perspective, it appears that two-year colleges with tripartite and dual missions are the most and least effective, respectively, while those with a singular mission occupy a middle position. The implications of these findings for research on the effectiveness of two-year colleges and for initiatives to enhance the effectiveness of their management practices and institutional performance are discussed. An earlier draft of this paper was presented at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of Higher Education, Boston, November 1991.

Organizational culture and effectiveness in two-year colleges   http://www.springerlink.com/app/home/contribution.asp?wasp=f8af226cca7d40fdb82cfa10e38b3fbf&referrer  Site Reviews(0)
The central purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which the effectiveness of a nationally representative sample of two-year colleges differs in terms of their dominant type of organizational culture. The findings demonstrate wide differences in the effectiveness of two-year colleges that exhibit the traits of clan, adhocracy, hierarchy, and market cultures, and the differences are consistent with their conceptual rationale. The research, policy, and practical implications of the findings in terms of our efforts to understand and improve the management and institutional performance of two-year colleges are discussed. Presented at the Association for Institutional Research Annual Forum, Atlanta, Georgia, May 10–13, 1992.

Office for Public Education   http://fcis.oise.utoronto.ca/%7Eope/  Site Reviews(0)
Publicly funded, equitable and accessible education is the foundation for building and sustaining a just and democratic society. Recent cuts to public funding in education compounded by new trends in the privatization, commercialization and commodification of education systematically undermine our commitment to create and sustain equitable as well as affordable access to outstanding educaiton for all Canadians. We need to come together as educators, students, parents, union members, ordinary citizens, and members of marginalized groups to share ideas on how to build coalitions capable for promoting, protecting and strengthening our publicly funded education systems. Public education is an indispensible requirement for the existence and development of an active and engaged citizenry prepared to address concerns, which matter to all and to defend the public space in which these concerns can receive widespread attention and in-depth discussion.

Ontario Action Researcher   http://www.nipissingu.ca/oar/  Site Reviews(0)
The Ontario Action Researcher is a freely accessible, full-text, peer-reviewed electronic journal intended for elementary, secondary, and university teachers who are concerned with exploring the unity between educational research and practice. While our primary aim is to serve the needs of educators in Ontario, we welcome readership and submissions from elsewhere in Canada and the world. To some, action research signifies individual, reflective practice; to others, group empowerment. Action researchers use it as a means of professional development, curriculum reform, and even democratic institutional change. Regardless of the reason, the shared goal of all these approaches would appear to be the mending of the rift between the researcher and the practitioner. Within this context, this journal strives to: Publish accounts of a range of action research projects in education and across the professions with the aim of making their outcomes widely available, providing models of effective action research and enabling educators to share their experiences Demonstrate connections between practice and theory through articles of a general nature on methodological and epistemological issues related to action research Disseminate reviews of books, websites and products related to action research And finally, to provide a forum for dialogue on the various action research projects that are taking place around the province

The OLC makes adult learning opportunities possible by inspiring ideas and informing action. We work to ensure all adults in Ontario benefit from literacy by gathering data and intelligence, cultivating partnerships, building capacity and advising policy. The OLC is currently focusing on 4 main strategies * Learning for Work * Learning for Families * Learning for Life * Building Effective Systems and Practices The OLC was established in 1987, along with 12 other provincial and territorial coalitions as part of a pan-Canadian framework. The coalition was created to support implementation of government initiatives, provide training, and disseminate information. Its purpose was also to assemble networking opportunities amongst programs and service organizations, and between regions, the province and communities across Canada. The OLC maintains strong stakeholder relations with 16 regional literacy networks and four sector councils. Almost 50,000 adult learners are served every year by the nearly 300 adult literacy programs supported by the OLC. Working closely with our partners from the Francophone, Deaf and Aboriginal Literacy Coalitions, we establish common practices around common issues. Key partnerships are also held with the business and labour communities as well as second-language, settlement services and other community organizations.
