Stevens, Andrew – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Since the 1980s, research on employment conditions in post-secondary institutions has focused on the growth of contingent academic workers, or what the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) has labelled "non-full- time instructors" (Field, Jones, Stephenson, & Khoyetsyan, 2014). Very little attention, however, has been…

Key components that ensure these provinces' institutions preserve their…

Kipang, Shani; Zuberi, Daniyal – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Given their unique pedagogical mandate and structure, Canadian public colleges play a central role in serving groups traditionally under-represented in the post-secondary system. Yet as enrolment from these groups continues to rise, it is unclear to what extent the diversity of student bodies is reflected among faculty. In fact, while issues of…

McAlpine, Lynn; Austin, Nichole – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2018
National and international statistics show that across disciplines there are many more PhD graduates than academic positions. In fact, more than half of graduates find their careers outside the academy--though the kinds of positions they accept, their work satisfaction, and the relevance of their PhDs is much less clear. As regards scholarly…

Researchers are encouraged or even required…

Ramey, Heather; Lawford, Heather; Chalmers, Heather; Lakman, Yana – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Student success in post-secondary education is an ongoing concern, however, research has focused on relatively homogeneous university samples. Moreover, Canadian research on predictors of student success is limited. Following recent trends, we examined non-cognitive, personal qualities, rather than cognitive predictors (e.g., IQ), of student…
