Council of Ontario Universities Working Paper Series, v1 n1-3 Oct 2001-Feb 2002
Papers in this volume are the first working papers produced by the Council of Ontario Universities. Issue 1, "The Role and State of Ontario Graduate Education" by Dennis Forcese, advocates the reinforcement of graduate education in Ontario institutions to maintain the overall quality of the institutions and to secure the future. The paper outlines the important, and often overlooked, contributions that graduate students make to the university community in terms of teaching and research assistance, original research, and their potential role as faculty. Issue 2, "Increased Integration of Programs in Engineering and the Humanities" by Patrick Oosthuizen, addresses the need to produce graduates who have a sound understanding of the impact of technology on society and presents some practical models for increasing interaction between humanities and engineering graduates. The third issue, "The Liberal Arts and Sciences Baccalaureate Degree: Are 15 Credits Enough?" by Jocelyn B. Aubrey, questions whether a 3-year program can provide graduate with a reasonable knowledge base in the chosen discipline. The discussion outlines some of the key issues in deciding whether to keep the 3-year degree. Guidelines for the university sector under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act is attached to the working papers collection. (SLD)
