Advancing Articulation: Models of College-University Collaboration in Canadian Higher
Kirby, Dale
College Quarterly, v11 n4 Fall 2008
This paper reports on the results of an analysis of program articulation between the college and university sectors in Canada. The Canadian post-secondary system is best described as a binary system with discrete university and non-university sectors. While there are complex sectoral differences between the two institutional types in terms of their history, mandate, culture and governance and significant differences between the level of coordination existent in each of the provinces, a number of transfer and collaborative program models have emerged and are identifiable. The program transfer models include the course-by-course transfer model, the multiple course transfer model, the block transfer model, and the program bridging transfer model. The identified collaborative models outlined include the integrated model, the articulated model, the parallel model, the sandwich model and two different hybrid models. As the categorization provided indicates, these models require varying levels of institutional integration and cooperation. (Contains 1 footnote.)
