Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
This bilingual (English and French) report examines the debate surrounding a Task Force analysis of higher education institutions in Canada. The Task Force reported on a variety of topics regarding Canada's colleges and universities from teaching and learning through curricular design to student retention and institutional performance. In addition, the Task Force identified a number of roles for the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) to play to ensure that the key thrusts of the Commission's report are addressed and that the appropriate changes are effected in university practices and in government policies. Discussed are the relationships between teaching and research; the long-term health of universities; the accountability and autonomy of higher education institutions; and means to enhance teaching and learning, such as teacher training, assessing teaching performance, and the use of information technologies. In addition, the report examines curriculum development; providing a supportive reward system; issues surrounding student access, retention, and mobility; and performance measures. Appendices include the composition of the AUCC Task Force on the Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Canadian University Education. (GLR)
