Educational Administration Programs in Canadian Universities.
Miklos, Erwin; Nixon, Mary
This research project collected, compiled, analyzed, and disseminated information about educational administration programs offered by Canadian universities. Among the specific questions addressed were the following: (1) What programs are offered by various universities? (2) What are some of the characteristics of the context in which those programs are offered? (3) What procedures are used in recruitment, selection, and admission of students? (4) What are the purposes of those programs in terms of the positions for which they are intended as preparation and the skills that they attempt to develop? (5) What is the content and structure of programs at the master's and doctoral levels? (6) What instructional methods and approaches are used? (7) What facilities and services are available, and how adequate are they judged to be by staff and students? (8) What placement activities do departments undertake, and where are students placed? (9) What changes in programs have been introduced recently and what changes are being considered? Seven questionnaires with certain common elements were designed for the specific sample groups--department chairpersons; master's, Ed.D., and Ph.D. coordinators; and master's, Ed.D., and Ph.D. students. Sample questionnaires are appended. (Author/IRT)
