Students With Dependants   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/students_dependants_e.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
In the fall of 2003, Georgian College’s Institute of Applied Research and Innovation was commissioned to compile an inventory of current practices for students with dependants at post-secondary institutions in Canada and the United States. The project consisted of a non-scientific, exploratory, qualitative investigation at selected institutions. It did not try to represent all post-secondary institutions nor did it try to catalogue all practices available for students with dependants. From an initial sample of more than 100 colleges and universities, we received responses from 39 Canadian and six American institutions.

The purpose of this study was to examine adult mentoring in the community college context. Specifically, the study investigated the relationships between factors thought to be associated with mentoring and the mentors' and mentees' perceptions of the career and psychosocial aspects of their mentoring relationship. Meeting frequency, duration of the relationship, method used to match mentor and mentee, age, gender, and previous mentoring experience were investigated for their effects on career and psychosocial mentoring functions.

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.

Social Support: An Essential Indgredient to Success   http://www.pathwaystocollege.net/pdf/support.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
Why Is Social Support Necessary? Research is unequivocal in showing that the quality and intensity of a student’s high school curriculum has the greatest impact on college success. But even rigorous academic preparation alone is not sufficient to assure that a student graduates from high school ready to succeed in college. Social support strategies that sustain the preparation and success of all students are critical to improving academic achievement, raising expectations, and increasing college-going rates of underserved students. Even when high school students from underserved groups are as academically well-prepared as their more affluent counterparts, they are less likely to go on to postsecondary education. More than a fifth of college-qualified, low-income high school graduates do not enter college. In fact, low-income, academically-prepared high school graduates scoring in the top quartile on achievement tests attend college at the same rate as high-income graduates scoring in the bottom quartile.3 To increase their college-going rates, this well-prepared pool of potential college graduates requires greater access to structured social support, including Social Support An Essential Ingredient to Success A College Readiness Issue Brief from the Pathways to College Network peer support, mentoring and personalized support, parental involvement, and early college preparation and planning. Peer Support Positive peer support is an important strategy to raise expectations, increase academic persistence, and promote college-going for underserved students. Studies by the American Council on Education and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation confirm the importance of peer-related factors in increasing a student’s likelihood of attending college: • Students who had a majority of friends who were planning to attend college w ere four times more likely to enroll than students whose friends did not intend to pursue a college degree. • Students with a significant portion of friends who were interested in attending college and students who belonged to a cohort of peers with whom to share college planning activities w ere far more likely to attend college.

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.

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.
