The Scholar Ship   http://www.thescholarship.com/home/  Site Reviews(1)
The Scholar Ship is a globally recognized academic program aboard a transformed passenger ship hosting students on semester-long voyages around the world. Participants from diverse cultural backgrounds come together to co-create life-changing experiences that develop their intercultural competence and foster friendships reaching the far corners of the world. The Scholar Ship program is built on the integration of four key elements: 1. an onboard classroom learning environment; 2. a multicultural residential and social community; 3. an experiential-oriented port program; and 4. a strategic research initiative. The Scholar Ship embarks on a semester-long journey around the world twice a year, commencing each January and September. Itineraries vary from voyage to voyage, but all are planned to provide engaging learning experiences through a port program that complements the curriculum onboard.

Stages of Group Development   http://www.chimaeraconsulting.com/tuckman.htm#top  Site Reviews(1)
Often quoted, often misunderstood. Bruce Tuckman's classic description of the stages of group development is easy to understand and remember, but it helps to go back and look at what's behind each stage. Bruce W Tuckman is a respected educational psychologist who first described the (then) four stages of group development in 1965, soon after leaving Princeton. Looking at the behaviour of small groups in a variety of environments, he recognised the distinct phases they go through, and suggested they need to experience all four stages before they achieve maximum effectiveness. He refined and developed the model in 1977 (in conjunction with Mary Ann Jensen) with the addition of a fifth stage. Since then, others have attempted to adapt and extend the model - although sometimes with more of an eye on rhyme than reason.

Strengthening Aboriginal Success   http://www.cmec.ca/Publications/Lists/Publications/Attachments/221/aboriginal_summit_report.pdf  Site Reviews(1)
The Elders are put on Earth to do teachings and teach people, so that we can learn to live with one another in a good way. I want to thank the [summit] committee for inviting me here and for being so kind and supportive in the work that Elders do. It’s always good to include spirituality and prayer in everything that you do. That’s the teaching of our people. Always remember the phrase, “Before your feet hit the ground, you should be in prayer.” We ask our creator… to listen to us… as we’re powerless without their spiritual help. We ask them to grant us courage for constructive solutions to complete what was discussed yesterday in smaller groups. That’s for the inclusion of First Nations and Métis people in the education system. We’re working toward that end, so that education will be holistic; it will be spiritual and in tune with the teachings of our people. I’m very grateful for the Elders who came before — our teachers, many of them are in the spirit world now — as we take over their responsibilities. The Elders always encouraged us to get the best education possible… Get your bachelor of arts and your master of arts and your Ph.D.… but they used to add… not at the expense of your culture. So that’s the message I picked from this conference. It was a very great honour to receive the star blanket. It is a very sacred gift and I thank you very much.

Among a series of initiatives to strengthen Ontario’s public postsecondary sector, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) has launched a process to establish strategic mandate agreements with each of Ontario’s 44 colleges and universities “that will strongly inform future decisions, including allocation decisions and program approvals. As part of that process, MTCU has requested that the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) establish a peer review panel to evaluate the mandate submissions in terms of their “ability to achieve significant improvements in productivity, quality and affordability through both innovation and differentiation.” The panel members are: Leslie Church, Global Communications and Public Affairs, Google Canada John Davies, President Emeritus, Humber College Richard DiCerni, Former Deputy Minister, Industry Canada Cindy Hazell, Former VP Academic, Seneca College Chaviva Hosek, Former President, Canadian Institute for Advanced Research Gilles Patry, President & CEO, Canada Foundation for Innovation Richard Rhoda, Executive Director, Tennessee Higher Education Commission Michael Stevenson, President Emeritus, Simon Fraser University David Trick, President, David Trick & Associates David Turpin, President, University of Victoria The peer review panel will identify those colleges and universities “whose submissions demonstrate the greatest ability to serve as lead institutions those that provide the most compelling and promising visions, mandate statements and plans that advance government policies, objectives and goals…The lead institutions selected through this exercise would be the first to receive funding to pursue their mandates starting as early as 2013-14.” To inform MTCU’s selection of lead institutions, HEQCO will provide its final appraisals to government in February 2013.
