Academic Reform

Clark sugests “Sufficient evidence about worrisome trends in the quality of learning and in the cost-effectiveness of the undergraduate teaching model in Ontario warrants substantial reform.” (75) Pointing to lower faculty-to-student ratios, lower faculty teaching loads and lower student engagement, Academic Reform provides a compelling case for implementing a “teaching-oriented” university that focuses on increasing the time faculty members devote to undergraduate education, accommodating higher numbers of students while also maintaining the attraction for accomplished university researchers. This book provides a substantial framework for addressing literacy standards within the broader context of economics and ideology and therefore will add scope to the literacy decline hypothesis.
