Background characteristics and patterns of access to postsecondary education in Ontario

Includes bibliographical references. 'University participation in Ontario has increased over the last decade, including students from lower income groups, according to a new study from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO). But the gender gap is also increasing, as women continue to access university at much higher rates than men. That's a profound change from earlier generations, say the study authors, and the consequences will only be played out in the years to come.'--Website.

Beyond labs and libraries

Includes bibliographical references. 'Approaches to higher education have been evolving at an increasingly rapid pace over the past decade, and graduate education is a critical part of that evolution. In Ontario alone, the number of new programs offered at our institutions has increased dramatically since 2004, and between 1999 and 2009, the number of PhD students enrolled in Ontario universities has nearly doubled (Maldonado, Wiggers, & Arnold, 2013).

Bridging the gap

Includes bibliographical references. 'Graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) are a staple of university education in Canada. Plentiful among them - particularly in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines - are international students from other countries and cultures where higher education is primarily teacher-centered and where students treat professors with deference and respect.

College-to-university transfer arrangements and undergraduate education

Includes research notes. Includes bibliographical references. 'Students who transfer from college to university to complete their undergraduate degree are likely to save themselves and the government money, and they often earn grades equivalent to students who go directly into university from high school, according to a new study from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO).'--The Council website.
