Disability-Research Discussion List   http://www.leeds.ac.uk/disability-studies/discuss.htm  Site Reviews(0)
This is an international e-mail discussion list administered at the DRU by Mark Priestley. The list (started in December 1994) is the largest of its kind in the world, and provides a forum for discussion on all aspects of disability research--both theoretical and practical. The list is intended for all those interested in research as it affects disabled people both in the UK and internationally. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, information and news, particularly among researchers working within a social model of disability. The list provides an opportunity for researchers, students and disabled people to share their ideas, experiences and research findings. It is also an excellent place to ask questions or seek information.

Should CAAT's grant degrees?   http://www.senecac.on.ca/quarterly/1995-vol03-num02-winter/skolnik.html  Site Reviews(0)
Michael Skolnik Recently, the question of degree granting for the CAATs has been receiving a lot of attention, and many academic leaders in the colleges have been urging that the CAATs be empowered to award certain types of degrees. The purpose of this paper is to examine the case for giving the CAATs the authority to award certain types of degree granting in Ontario. Then it describes the types of degrees which have been proposed for the CAATs and their status in some of the jurisdictions where they are awarded. Lastly, it analyzes the arguments which have been advanced in support of the proposal in the context of the present relationship between the CAATs and the provincial universities and offers some conclusions

Double Cohort Study Report 4   http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/document/reports/phase4/index.html  Site Reviews(0)
Phase 4 of the Double Cohort Study, conducted between 2003-05, completes the four studies in the series. Phases 1, 2 and 3 were based on information collected during the 2000-01, 2001-02 and 2002-03 school years, respectively. The goals of the Double Cohort Study were to develop projections of student application rates to Ontario colleges and universities for the double cohort year (2003-04) and ensuing years, and to examine the implementation of the Reorganized Program in Ontario secondary schools with regard to impact on student progress to graduation. Phase 4 was designed to examine the effect of the double cohort and the Reorganized Program on future college and university enrolments, and to study in depth the factors affecting student progress and secondary school graduation rates over the first five cohorts of the Reorganized Program. Sources of information for Phase 4 of the Double Cohort Study include the following: 2003, 2004 and 2005 college and university student application information and 2003 and 2004 registration information from the Ontario College Application Services and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre; 1999-2000 to 2003-04 student transcript information for students across the province from the Ministry of Education; questionnaires administered in spring 2004 to students in Grade 12 and Year 5 from the school sample of 150 schools (including an additional sample of French schools) drawn in Phase 1; communication with key informants (e.g., directors, principals, guidance counsellors); 2003-04 school calendars and master timetables from 92 schools and relevant research.

Decision Making for Partnership   http://www.iccd.cornell.edu/downloads/research/rb/decisionmakingforpartnerships.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
The reduction of public funding and a movement towards increased accountability has required community college presidents to explore new partnerships. These partnerships with institutions such as businesses and industries, community organizations, and/or educational institutions may be fiscally driven, educationally motivated, or a political reality. Studies in the community college literature document numerous partnerships and a wide array of purposes, but few studies deeply examine the criteria community college presidents use to make decisions about engaging in partnership agreements.

Department of Native Studies University of Saskatchewan   http://www.usask.ca/nativestudies/  Site Reviews(0)
The idea for a Native Studies Department at the University of Saskatchewan was first put forward by Aboriginal students in 1978-79. These students were asking for a program that affirmed the value and dignity of Aboriginal societies: their histories, languages, philosophies and oral and literary traditions, as well as their traditional institutions and lifestyles. The College of Arts and Sciences responded to these requests with the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee, which in 1981 recommended that such a program be created. In 1982 the Native Studies Programme was formally introduced and in 1983 the Department of Native Studies was created. Four years later the department was granted the right to offer a graduate program and since 1997 it has offered a complete graduate program. As an emergent discipline, Native Studies is is still in a formative stage. During its foundational era, Native Studies has drawn heavily on a number of long-established disciplines, in particular Anthropology and History, and it has only just begun to take shape as an independent field of study. One sign of this evolution is the increasing number of tenure-track faculty and sessional instructors, who are Native Studies graduates and specialists, as opposed to academics drawn from other fields of scholarship. From its multi-disciplinary foundation, Native Studies is progressively acquiring an independent and unique basis for its teaching and research. Therefore, Native Studies can no longer be accurately considered simply as prescribed, interdisciplinary program, it is an evolving stand-alone field of enquiry that has, at its core, the sole focus Aboriginal society and societies. Native Studies is bounded only by the extent of Aboriginal society and societies and not by a parent discipline, or a single methodology or ideology. Another significant difference between Native Studies and other disciplines, is that other disciplines tend to examine Aboriginal societies exogenously, whereas Native Studies attempts to understand them from within. Native Studies holds that Aboriginal collectivities are unique localised social entities, who to be fully understood need to be considered in a national context and as integral to the global mosaic of Indigenous Peoples. From this basis Native Studies at the University of Saskatchewan actively supports the promotion and definition of Native Studies as an independent field of study that has at its core the scholarly enquiry into Aboriginal society and societies. The Department of Native Studies seeks to provide an intellectual milieu where teaching and research are well grounded in the priorities and knowledge of Saskatchewan’s Aboriginal communities, all the while placing them within the larger fabric of the Canadian Aboriginal experience and the emergent global, social phenomenon of indigeneity. Researchers and students in Native Studies at the University of Saskatchewan explore and seek to understand the fundamental nature of Aboriginal society. As a centre of academic inquiry based on sound pedagogical and research principles, the Department of Native Studies is striving to develop more expansive and innovative views on Indigenous Knowledge, going well beyond simple binaries like juxtaposing Indigenous knowledge in opposition to Western scholarship. Rather the Department has taken on the more challenging task of demanding excellence in conventional scholarship in addition to developing new and culturally appropriate methodologies and theories sourced in the Aboriginal life Departmental Goals to promote academic and teaching excellence; to encourage the development of specific Native Studies paradigms and theoretical frameworks; to foster and conduct original scholarly research on Aboriginal history and life, and develop research skills relevant to the needs of Aboriginal communities; to promote and encourage Aboriginal scholars and scholarship; to understand and appreciate the nature of Aboriginal societies and acknowledge the contribution of those societies to both the national and international communities; and to foster cultural awareness, while simultaneously bridging the cultural gaps and challenging racial intolerance and stereotypes.
