Research at Colleges in Ontario: Learning from the Past and Looking Towards the Future
Holmes, Krista M.
College Quarterly, v20 n3 2017
Research activities are a relatively new undertaking for Ontario colleges. The Government of Ontario enabled Ontario colleges to grant baccalaureate degrees in applied areas of study with the passing of the 2000 Postsecondary Education Choice and Excellence Act, and conduct applied research with the passing of the 2002 Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology Act. Fifteen years later, applied research has now become an essential part of college programming. This article provides history and context for the emergence of Ontario colleges as institutions engaging in applied research activities, examines the barriers and limitations that researchers at Ontario colleges face, and identifies some implications for research practice at Ontario colleges in the future.
