CSA responds to Ontario's PSE discussion paper

October 12, 2012

In a report prepared in response to the Ontario government's PSE discussion paper, the College Student Alliance offers several recommendations to the province under the categories of expanded credential options and supplements; credit transfer, credential compatibility, and student mobility; year-round learning; quality teaching and learning outcomes; technology-enabled learning opportunities; entrepreneurial and experiential learning; and tuition framework. CSA's recommendations include expanding college degree programs as well as Ontario's dual credit program; prioritizing students traditionally underrepresented in PSE in the development of the Ontario Online Institute; implementing a tuition freeze for a period of 2 years, during which different policy options should be examined; and government and institutions creating a standard definition for experiential learning.
