3 Section I: Description of the Unit A. Mission The Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE) mission statement is to improve the quality of schooling and other forms of education--in Quebec, Canada, and internationally--in partnership with local, provincial, and federal governments, international agencies, NGOs, and the private sector. See ( for full details. The long term aims of the Department are: to serve its immediate academic and professional communities; to educate effective teachers and leaders for educational organizations; to engage in and develop scholarship in the areas of pedagogy, curriculum, literacy education, educational policy, international and cultural studies of education, and educational leadership; to engage in policy research and consulting aimed at improving the reform of educational institutions and systems. DISE completed its ninth year in September 2010, the result of a merger between three former academic units (Educational Studies, Culture and Values in Education, and Second Language Education). The Department continues to strive to meet these aims through harnessing the professional expertise of faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and by directing available resources to the creation of a culture of excellence in teaching, research and service to the Faculty, McGill and the broader academic community. As noted in the annual report, DISE is fully committed to articulating its efforts to the broader goals of the Faculty Compact planning process and the University s White Paper, Strengths and Aspirations (November, 2005). In doing so, the Department s overall aim is to contribute to increasing the profile of the Faculty as an internationally recognised centre for the exploration of new forms of knowledge, teaching, and learning within the multiplicity of social contexts that now define education in the 21st century. The Department comprises six graduate programs (five MA and one PhD) and six undergraduate programs (BEd). It also continues to offer credit and non-credit courses through the Centre for Educational Leadership (CEL), and First Nations and Inuit Education programs (FNIE) to teachers, administrators, and other professionals interested in upgrading/updating their knowledge, expertise and skills. Over , student numbers (FTEs) in DISE undergraduate programs increased slightly to 1,294 (from 1,260 the previous year) with a modest increase in its graduate programs to 326 from 279 with the inclusion of the MATL program but not counting Graduate Certificate in Leadership 1 & 2 programs. In line with guidelines expressed in the White paper Strengths and Aspirations (2005) and GPSO policy concerning graduate student funding, the Department aims to increase graduate student numbers over the next two years until It should be noted that the Department cannot apply this principle to our undergraduate programs as student numbers are regulated by quotas established by the Ministère de l'éducation, du loisir et du sport (MELS). Students graduating from DISE programs continue to follow career paths described in previous reports, including: teaching in schools and colleges; teaching and research in tertiary education; educational administration and leadership; evaluation research and consulting in both public and private sectors; and updating and enhancement of academic and professional skills and expertise. It should be noted that DISE graduates have gained employment at the local (Montreal), provincial (Quebec), national, and international (e.g., UNESCO) levels within their respective fields of expertise. Attached as appendices are the reports of directors of programs, CEL, and d FNIE that comprise DISE.

4 Centre for Educational Leadership (Dr. Lynn Butler-Kisber: Appendix 10) First Nations and Inuit Education programs (Donna-Lee Smith: Appendix 11) Office of Student Teaching (Dr. Fiona Benson: Appendix 12). B. Objectives The Department continues to develop its aims and objectives in line with those of the Faculty of Education s Compact planning process and the University s White Paper, Strengths and Aspirations (2005). These aims and objectives are: 1. To review, revise and update its undergraduate and graduate programs; 2. To improve links with the wider educational community; 3. To increase funding for graduate student support; 4. To increase scholarship and funded research; 5. To address problems related to full-time and part-time staff and student/teacher ratios. As noted above, a key strategic objective in the Department s planning process is the linking of its aims and objectives with the principal goals of the University s White paper, Strengths and Aspirations. While there are different mechanisms through which this is accomplished, the new strategic planning process and its associated planning cycles initiated by the new Dean over have become the central decision-making mechanism through which departmental policy is to be articulated, developed and implemented as the Faculty moves forward over the next 3-5 years. The DISE strategic plan (which was submitted to the Provost s office in July 2009, along with the strategic plans of the other three academic units of the Faculty of Education) outlined three interrelated streams for the future development of the Department: 1. Policies and practices in teaching and learning. This stream focuses on research initiatives that are concerned with the pedagogical sciences. While this research stream has a focus on the social contexts, organisation and processes that constitute contemporary schooling (e.g. curricula, assessment, teaching/learning), it also includes both non-formal and informal contexts of teaching/learning, as well as fields of study that focus on policy, whether generated from within provincial governments or at the global level (e.g. the OECD). 2. Multi-literacies and emerging technologies. While the field of Literacy has existed in Education since the latter part of the 20 th century, the development of new technologies has rendered this area even more critical in the global world of the 21 st century. The stream Multi-literacies and emerging technologies identifies both the existing strength in the area of second language acquisition, as well as new forms of literacy generated by the internet and related digital technologies (e.g., blogs, zines, wikis and texting) that are the focus of DISE faculty. 3. Epistemologies of social inquiry. DISE faculty has established a strong international reputation for innovation in alternative research methodologies in the study of education. It should be noted that the approach to constructing new methodologies has been less concerned with empirically quantifiable evidence-based research, than with emphasizing the contribution of research-based evidence across a broad spectrum of research, whether qualitative, hermeneutic, or historical. Combined, these three streams represent DISE s existing strengths, as well as domains of research that it intends to build on and develop in strategically positioning itself as a leader within educational research over the next decade within Canada and internationally. This annual report covers 19 months of work in DISE owing to the change in the reporting timeframe. Consequently, some of the data collected exceeds what might normally be reported in a one-year span as was the case in prior annual reports. Moving forward, the University will return to a true annual i.e. 12 month reporting schedule.

5 Review and revision of the BEd, MA and PhD programs run by DISE is an ongoing process. As noted in the report, the Department continues to implement a new and revised model of the existing undergraduate program developed by Drs Benson and Riches which aims to increase the amount of time that student teachers spend in schools and fostering a closer integration of professional experiences in the field with academic studies within the Faculty of Education through, for example, professional portfolios. While this presently affects only year three of the program, it is intended to become the basis of the entire program over the coming years (see Appendices 8 and 12--Riches and Benson). The initiative developed by Drs Benson and Riches, has continued with international placements/stages for student teachers in Cuba, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. While still limited to 20 students, it is hoped that these placements will be expanded and offered to greater numbers of students in the near future. In , 18 students participated. Objective 2 continues to be a defining element of the Department s mission. Collaboration and cooperation with a range of community-based organizations, the MELS, school boards, other universities, research institutes, NGOs and international organizations continue to be pursued by Department members (see Appendix 8). The following three tables indicate that in terms of scholarly publications in refereed journals/books (Table 1), DISE faculty (PI) research funding (Table 2), and graduate student financial support (i.e. scholarships, awards, TA/RAs, part-time teaching and related funding: Table 3) that the Department continues to perform extremely well (Objectives 3 and 4). Table 1

7 Last, the Department continues to limit its reliance on part-time and sessional staff in an attempt to reduce costs, particularly now that the Faculty/University is facing a fiscal imbalance created by the global recession (objective 5). However, because the Department has lost ten full-time tenured positions in the last five years and hired two-tenure track professors in the Math and Science areas, it is likely that the 40/60 ratio of part-time staff to full-time faculty will remain until some of these tenure-track positions are replaced. Section II: Activities A. Teaching/Learning 1. Achievements and Innovations In the spirit of innovation that defines the ethos of DISE, its professors continued to develop either existing or new initiatives within the Department over These included the following: The Fall of 2009 marked the third year of the Department s new PhD of record in Educational Studies. While applications and students accepted dipped slightly from the previous year the ratio of registered from accepted was up marginally i.e. 76% from 68% with 19 of the 25 registering from those accepted versus 25 from 37 in As noted in the annual report, new research space was allocated to DISE by interim Dean Jamshid Beheshti and then approved by Faculty Council on the 2nd level of the Coach House, just north of the main Faculty building on Peel. This space is being extensively used by projects under the supervision of Dr Claudia Mitchell on HIV/AIDS education, youth and participatory cultures; Dr Steven Jordan s Initiative for Diversity and Global Education (IDGE) project; and Dr Mela Sarkar on aboriginal language revitalisation. A number of events were held over the past eighteen months to inaugurate this research space, including a wine and cheese party sponsored by Dr Mitchell s participatory cultures lab during the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences in May In addition, Dr Jordan s IDGE project hosted a two day seminar in November 2010 at which Drs Marie Battiste (University of Saskatchewan), Jo-Anne Archibald (UBC) and Graham Smith (Chancellor and CEO of Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi in Whakatane, New Zealand) attended as members of the IDGE advisory panel. DISE held its annual retreat on May 12, While a number of issues pertaining to both undergraduate and graduate education were discussed, attention was focused on three topics: revisioning the K/Elementary Program; FE Assessment and Professional Portfolios; and MATL. As part of the strategic planning process initiated by the University s white paper Strengths and Aspirations (2005), as well as the requirement to conduct a review of the Faculty of Education over , the Department submitted its strategic plan to the Dean in July 2009 (see Appendix 13). The strategic plan, which outlines the Department s research and related hiring trajectories over the next 3-5 years, elaborates a framework based on existing and recognised research strengths within the Department, as well as marking out potentially new fields of social/educational inquiry that will establish it as a leader among Canadian G13 universities, AAAU, and the international arena. The development of a common English Language Proficiency Test among the Anglophone universities (Bishop s, Concordia and McGill) that was under development over the past year has now been trialed, tested and approved by the MELS. Implementation of the test commenced in Fall While the test was developed under the guidance of Dr Carolyn Turner, special mention has to be made of the contributions of DISE s Dr. Beverly Anne Baker in its design, development and implementation. As noted in the Undergraduate Program Director s report (Appendix 8), in keeping with the CAPFE accreditation of our B.Ed. programs, this annual event is designed to bring closure to the final field experience (FE4) and professional seminar (PS4) by providing our graduating students with professional development. Teacher Leadership and Youth Action: Community Engagement and Beyond! was the theme for the April 2010 event. (See Appendix E) for program details. Supported by the Office of Student teaching (OST), two pilot initiatives were put into action in Fall The first, in collaboration with Evergreen, promotes outdoor classrooms for schools, and the second is a

8 community service learning initiative that allows student teachers to work with local organizations that serve marginalised and at risk youth within the city (see Appendix 14). The Department s intra-net, the DOCC (DISE on-line community centre), continues to be popular and its functions have been extended to conduct, for example, on-line voting for elections that take place within the Department from time to time. In addition, the Department s website ( has recently been redesigned and updated in line with University-mandated templates on website design and delivery. The Department held part-time instructors meeting in August 2009 and June 2010 to welcome, inform, and support new and returning instructors. A newly created and updated instructor s handbook was distributed to instructors providing them with specific University, Faculty, and Departmental information, polices, procedures, links, and documents to support their teaching in the Department. Dr. Caroline Riches hosted the session and answered FAQs for new staff. Teaching Assistants Information meetings were co-ordinated by Dr. Riches and supported by Drs. Seiler and Steinberg in September 2009, January 2010, and September New and returning TAs were invited and participated in a morning-long meeting to understand their expectations and roles as TAs for various courses in the Department. CEL completed Phase III, which was the final phase of a 3-year efficacy study of the Home Instruction Program of Parents of Youngsters Program (HIPPY) in Montreal funded by the Chagnon Foundation. HIPPY prepares home visitors to work with parents who in turn work with children on literacy development and socialization skills for school. During this final phase of the study, a former doctoral student, Joanne Kingsley, an Associate Professor at Bishop s, became a co-investigator and worked closely with Dr Butler- Kisber and Sylvia Sklar on the analyses and final report that was submitted in August The online journal LEARNing Landscapes published its fourth issue entitled Curriculum: Innovations and Issues on July 01, 2009 and the fifth issue on Literacy: Multiple Perspectives and Practices was published in November A launch was held for issues four and five and attracted some 70 educators from the local educational milieu and generated a very positive response. The journal was also exhibited at the Canadian Society for Studies in Education Conference held at Concordia University in May A foundation established by MELS called the Leading English Education and Resource Network (LEARN) funded by federal entente money began servicing the newer technology that MELS has been providing to boards. For the fourth year CEL partnered with LEARN, which provided the technological support, to offer e-learn graduate certificate courses in the fall 2009 and winter At least one course per term is offered online, and while there was initially some resistance among the local cohorts, the culture has changed and there is a growing demand for more e-courses. With a solid idea of what works well in these courses and why (the synchronous aspect is particularly important), CEL is working with GPSO to try to expand and be able to attract national and international students. In Spring 2009, the Director of FNIE, Donna-Lee Smith, co-developed and co-taught Experiences in Communication with two Inuk teachers, Ulaayu Pilurtuut and Annie Tertiluk, for the Kativik School Board. The course was linguistically and culturally adapted to meet the participants needs and was taught primarily in Inuktitut, with all materials translated into the Aboriginal language. The planning took place in March and the course was delivered in May, in Kuujjuaq, Arctic Quebec. This method of planning and teaching plays an important role in maintaining the Inuit language and culture in Arctic Quebec. The FNIE Director was invited to work with the Innu nation in Labrador. Her children s storybook writing workshop was adapted to meet the needs of teachers in Natuashish (former Davis Inlet) and Sheshatshui. The workshop was delivered in English, but the storybooks were written in the Innu dialects used in the northern and southern areas of Labrador.

9 2. Cooperation with other teaching units The Department continues to collaborate with other units within the Faculty and University, as well as with other institutions of higher learning within Quebec, Canada and internationally. As noted in previous reports, such collaboration within the university is reflected in the following activities: DISE students continue to participate in programs in other faculties, particularly Arts, Science, and Music, where the Department either requires students to take courses in programs offered by these Faculties or has established joint degree programs with them (e.g., BSc/BEd). Revision of B.Ed. Secondary subject area course requirements in order to achieve a better alignment with the Quebec Education Program Alternately, students from other faculties (and universities through IUTs) continue to register in DISE programs or take individual courses. Professors in DISE are either cross-appointed or teach in other academic units (e.g., Arts, Medicine, Music, Religious Studies, and Science). As noted above, Dr Teresa Strong-Wilson was appointed an iplai fellow ( ) to research the theme of memory and echo. DISE regularly draws on the knowledge and expertise of professors in other academic units to act as advisors in conducting job searches for new hires, curriculum planning (in areas such as science, math and music) and collaborative research ventures. The joint Faculty of Education/Science committee to explore approaches to science education in McGill that was established in the Winter 2009 is one such initiative that has fostered close inter-faculty/departmental links. Cooperation with other institutions outside the university is also a constant. Through professional associations, research collaborations and related activities, Department members continue to forge strong links with research teams in universities in Quebec, Canada and internationally. 3. Accreditation In December 2009 funding was approved for a Cree School Board (CSB) cohort of 30 students to apply to a full-time delivery of the B.ED. Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option. For the first time in the history of the Cree School Board, a cohort of students is attending a full-time BEd McGill program; and it is the first time in the history of FNIE that students are enrolled in a program that leads to general certification. The Masters of Teaching and Learning (MATL) program was launched. The program was accepted and accredited by CAPFE and MELS in Spring 2010 and opened to students currently employed by a school board (lien d emploi). 29 students were accepted into the first cohort (Summer 2010). Subsequently, MELS lifted the lien d emploi (employment) restriction necessitating a program revision and resubmission for accreditation. The program was revised and submitted/presented for re-accreditation in December In June 2010, the FNIE director travelled to Kawawachikamach to interview the more than 24 candidates for the Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Education. The program started full time in the Fall 2010, and, as with the CSB program, qualified community-based instructors were contracted to teach the Naskapi language and cultural skills courses, with McGill graduate students contracted for the other courses. 4. Graduate programs At the graduate level, the major M.A. program revision begun in was approved by the University in late August As of September 2009, all entering M.A. students who applied to the M.A. in Curriculum Studies or the M.A. in Culture & Values in Education in fact enrolled in the new M.A. in Education and Society program. This program has two streams, corresponding to the former programs: Teaching, Learning and Curriculum, and Culture and Values in Education. The program change introduces more elective room into this inter-disciplinary area, to reflect the wide range of interests of both students and faculty. As of December 2010, response to the program change has been positive.

10 In Fall 2009, a minor program change was made to the M.A. program in Second Language Education. The Research Methods course formerly required for all MA-SLE students, EDSL-664, was experimentally, then formally replaced by EDEM-690, the Research Methods course common to all other DISE MA programs. This had the effect of bringing the MA-SLE more into line with our other programs. After serving his year as Graduate Programs Co-Director, Dr Kevin McDonough stood down in May, Dr Michael Hoechsmann started his term as GPD for Fall 2009 and as of January 2010 Dr. Mela Sarkar returned as co-gpd in DISE. For further details on graduate programs see Appendix In-service support activities In-service support activities continue to be a central and on-going component of the professional and academic life of the Department. While in-service support is conducted over a broad range of activities across the year, within DISE it principally involves: Providing support, mentoring and advice to tenure-track faculty; Providing mentors (senior staff) for new and incoming faculty to provide support and advice on teaching, administration, research and tenure; Providing an orientation session and handbook to new sessional staff at the beginning of each academic year; Providing opportunities and support for full and part-time staff members to participate in in-service training provided by service units (e.g., TLS) within the University; Providing opportunities for ancillary and support staff members to attend training workshops offered by Human Resources and other support units to enhance their administrative efficiency and performance; Providing renewal to Faculty through presentations and discussions from experts in the field (e.g. from the MELS) concerning topical issues at its monthly meetings; and, Providing orientation sessions for Teaching Assistants, new and returning at the beginning of Fall and Winter sessions. Combined, these in-service support activities ensure that DISE faculty and ancillary/support staff receives high quality training on a continuing basis so as to optimise services that DISE provides within its limited budget. 6. Administrative structures supporting teaching and learning As in previous years, the department has three standing committees to support teaching and learning. These are the DISE Steering Committee, the Graduate Programs Committee (GPC), and the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC). The work of these committees has been supplemented by an ad-hoc committee to oversee the implementation of the MATL, lead by Drs Fiona Benson, Caroline Riches, Gale Seiler and Associate Dean Elizabeth Wood. In addition to these committees, the Department has academic administrators of the following centres/offices: Centre for Educational Leadership (Director, Lynn Butler-Kisber/Associate Director, Sylvia Sklar); First Nations and Inuit Education (Director, Donna-Lee Smith);; Graduate Programs (Co-Directors Mela Sarkar/Michael Hoechsmann); Undergraduate Programs (Director, Caroline Riches); Office of Student Teaching (OST: Fiona Benson). 7. Technology support Technology support continues to be critical to the work of Department members across a broad spectrum of activities, as it does to both its undergraduate and graduate students. There are six ways the Department accesses this technology: The Computing laboratory on the 3 rd floor of the Education building;

11 Offices made available to graduate students with computers and internet connections; The University s laptop program for academic staff; A mobile laptop laboratory used by the Centre for the Study of Teaching and Writing (CSTW) in its paperless classroom; The wireless network is now installed throughout the Faculty building; and, The construction and use of a smart classroom on the 6 th floor of the Faculty building, completed in Fall 2009, has been very successful. As noted in the report, this technology infrastructure is utilised in a variety of ways by DISE members through WebCT and other blended forms of teaching and learning. As a pioneer of MERCURY, DISE now has all its course evaluations completed on-line. However, perhaps the most significant development over the past few years has been the creation of a DISE intranet, entitled the DISE On-line Community Centre (DOCC), established by Dr Doreen Starke-Meyerring. This has not only changed the way the Department conducts its regular monthly meetings, but is also beginning to change the way it conducts its day-to-day business activities by, for example, providing on-line discussion forums in preparation for the adoption of department procedures and policies; on-line voting for elections to committees; instant messenger; archiving of department guidelines, policies, minutes etc., as well as other functions such as downloading forms, information on under/graduate programs and so on. Despite widespread concern and opposition from faculty within DISE and ECP, in Fall 2009 the Educational Media Services (EMS) centre was closed and support was transferred to ICS. Equipment from EMS was transferred to the Faculty of Education Library for loan. 8. Graduate funding DISE graduate student numbers continue to grow with 130 PhD and 250 MA enrolments (statistics on admissions and graduations are contained in the Graduate Program Co-Directors report, Appendix 9). In line with Strengths and Aspirations, the Department aims to increase these numbers by 10-20% over the coming few years. As in past years, DISE graduates from both MA and PhD programs have secured positions in a range of employment sectors, including federal, provincial and international organisations and agencies. DISE graduate students also continue to be successful in attracting awards from both federal (SSHRC) and provincial funding agencies (FQRSC).

Some simply decide to go elsewhere if they can get better funding. While our students track record for prestigious external awards (SSHRC, FQRSC) has held steady over the past few years, with two or three students per year receiving awards in each category on the first selection round and usually one or two more qualifying on the second round, these awards only benefit a very small proportion of our graduate students (i.e., fewer than 10 per year out of an

14 enrolment of over 200 thesis students). Partly in response to the need for more funding, in Winter 2010, DISE undertook changes to the graduate funding put in place by GPS. In 2010, the greater portion of the DISE portion of the Principal s Graduate Fellowship envelope was broken up into much smaller packages than formerly, of $1000. This was done in consultation with EGSS. A one-page statement of financial need was requested as an application for these funds, without discrimination between new and continuing students. Between 35 and 40 people (nearly all who applied) received this amount. The procedure of selection and distribution took longer than usual, as the eligibility criteria used by GPS conflicted with the less restrictive criteria DISE had hoped to use. In the end, students beyond MA2 and PhD5 were not allowed to receive any funds, and the awards set aside for people in those categories were reallocated. Additionally, the McConnells were awarded in amounts of $4000 (smaller than in previous years), again, in response to student demand. The Provost s Graduate Fellowship monies, totaling $5000 for each new PhD student and $1500 for each new MA-Thesis student, continued to be given directly to students in those categories. C. Research As in past years, the production of research and scholarship in DISE is comparable with leading international centres for educational innovation and research. Research productivity, measured in both absolute quantity (i.e., research funding) and quality (i.e., placement in international publications) continues to be a central aim of the Department s mission. In addition, the Department has in many respects been at the forefront in developing a culture that systematically values and promotes forms of inter-disciplinary research that McGill and other G13 universities have promoted in the last decade. Creating a culture of innovation and excellence in research and scholarship has meant establishing a set of best practices within DISE that are replicable across disciplinary boundaries and that are ultimately sustainable for the future. While the Department acknowledges that these practices may change and evolve over time, to date they have included the following: First, the Department has sought to create a strong and vibrant culture of research and scholarship among both faculty and its students through support for guest lectures, occasional seminars, invitations to visiting scholars and travel to national/international conferences; Second, both DISE faculty and students continue to be successful at securing grant funding from the major provincial (FQRSC) and federal (SSHRC, CIHR and CIDA) agencies, as well as other organisations (see Appendix 9). Aggregate funding from these sources has risen year on year since the Department was formed in 2001 as Tables 1 and 3 indicate; Third, the Department has continued to attract, and select, high calibre professors who are making exceptional contributions in research, teaching and service to the academic community; Fourth, DISE has a large and vibrant graduate research culture comprising approximately 380 students (250 MA, 130 Ph.D.). These students do not only make significant contributions to Department activities, such as the weekly Research Exchange Forum (REF) and the annual Education Graduate Student Society (EGSS) conference, but also in the many conference presentations, ensuing conference proceedings and academic publications; And finally, due to its growing international profile within the academic community, the Department has attracted applications from international scholars and post-doctoral candidates from around the globe. Visiting professors and post-doctoral scholars, who often come for periods of one to two semesters, work closely with DISE faculty on a range of research projects (see appendix 5 for details). Section III: Academic Staff New Hires Two new tenure track hires were secured in DISE in Dr. Anila Asghar was appointed an Assistant Professor in Science Education on July Dr. Kara Jackson was appointed an Assistant Professor in Math

15 Education in August In addition, Dr. Beverly Baker was hired as Faculty Lecturer in Language Arts Education in June 2010 for three years. While the call for a strategic plan was welcome and ultimately productive in introducing a transparent, coordinated and coherent planning mechanism that was Faculty wide, it nevertheless did not address the fact that DISE has lost ten full-time tenure-track positions, radically reducing its total complement from 38 to 30 in just over four years since 2006 (see Table 4). Table 4 Name Area of Specialization Reason for Time since position not Departure filled S. Wall Written Communication Retired 4 month (Sept 2010) J. Russell Music Education Retired 7 months (May 2010) C. Milligan Social Studies Education Retired 8 months (April 2010) J. Kincheloe literacy/pedagogy Passed away 8 months (December 08) CRC (1) C. Pittenger Written communication Retired 8 months (December 08) D. Lussier French Second Language Retired 8 months (December 08) education G. Kelebay Social Studies Education Passed away 9 months (November 08) A. Beer Language Arts Education Resigned 12 months (August 08) H. Riggs Mathematics Education Retired (August 07) C. Lusthaus Educational Leadership Retired 2 yrs. (August 07) L. Studham Arts Education: Retired 3 yrs. (August 06) Further, since the announcement of the University s recent retirement package in 2009, two professors and one Faculty lecturer have retired from the Department. Taken together with the previous eight departures, this means that DISE will have lost more than 30% of its complement. Such a rate of decline is obviously not sustainable and will likely jeopardise both its accredited (e.g. BEd and MA) programs as well as its ability to mount new programs in the future. In this respect, it is essential that the Faculty and University commits to academic renewal as a means of continuing to build its capacity to educate teachers, providing the means through which the Faculty can continue to educate future and current teachers according to the highest international standards of excellence. While the Department recognizes that University policy stipulates that there is no guarantee of direct replacement of departing Faculty, it is nonetheless the case that departures in major areas have left gaping holes in the area of teacher education. These urgently need to be filled not through a sense of entitlement or guaranteed replacement but rather for valid reasons related to quality of research and teaching in core areas. The urgent need in DISE for faculty renewal is directly related to the high number of full-time tenured faculty it has lost over the past few years, the majority of whom were teaching and researching in the area of teacher education, the Department s (and Faculty s) core area of activity (i.e., the preparation and professional development of teachers). Lastly, the loss of approximately one third of its full-time professors continues to undermine the Department s efforts to reduce its reliance on part-time/sessional lecturers to teach its courses. As stated in the previous annual report, the ratio of part-time/sessional lecturers to full-time tenure-track/tenured faculty is roughly 40/60. Unless the Department can replace the faculty it has lost, this ratio will increasingly be skewed towards parttime/sessional lecturers, as will the budget allocation required by the Department to hire these lecturers. Notwithstanding the recently announced increase in sessional lecturer remuneration to $6,000 per three credit course, up from $5,000 previously for such positions, this is still $ less than sister institutions in Montreal/Quebec. As a consequence, the Department is increasingly finding it difficult to recruit and hire high

16 quality sessional lecturers, particularly to teach in graduate programs where a higher degree (usually a PhD) is required. Staff Departures witnessed a number of staff departures in the academic and clerical staff areas. In April 2010, Professor Christpher Milligan retired from the University after more than 33 years of service in Social Studies Education. Professor Joan Russell retired in May 2010 after 15 years of service to the Faculty in Music Education. Sharron Wall retired in August 2010 after 22years of service in Written Communication in the Faculty. In late Fall of 2009, budgetary cuts resulted in the abolishment of the Graduate Program Advisor position in DISE. Consequently, the management position was not renewed in the Department and tasks and responsibilities fell on the clerical staff and casuals. Later in the Fall, the lone cleric providing support to the area took a medical leave and ultimately resigned from the University the following year. The Department was fortunate to find casual support to fill the gaps as best they could in the interim. Michael Lariviere arrived from GPS with graduate student experience and Catherine Hughes returned part-time from retirement from the Faculty to support the various graduate studies programs in the Department. Michael was eventually given a one-year contract in 2010 and subsequently Ms. Jennifer Element was hired in a second, newly-created clerical position to support graduate programs in December Currently, two senior clerical staff in the Department have reached normal retirement age. As Quebec does not have a mandatory retirement policy, it cannot be fully determined when these staff members will retire and succession planning is being reviewed, if upon retirement, the positions can be filled. Contributions of Sessional, Part-time and Auxiliary staff As in previous years, the Department continues to rely on the contributions of the part-time and sessional staff who teach in both its undergraduate and graduate programs. Approximately 40% of undergraduate and graduate sections continue to be taught by sessional lecturers, most of whom are highly experienced professionals who have many years of experience in the school and CEGEP system. As noted above, however, unless most of the 10 tenure-track/tenured positions that DISE has recently lost over the years are replaced, it is very likely that this percentage will increase over the coming years, as will its budget allocation for part-time/sessional lecturers. As noted in previous reports, while initiatives have been explored to reduce dependence on part-time/sessional lecturers, the attrition experienced in full-time tenure-track/tenured positions over the four years severely limits, even contradicts, any progress being made on cutting budgets without affecting the quality of education offered to undergraduate and graduate students. Despite this and as a response to the Provost s request that academic units review their expenditure over the coming year in light of the global recession and its impacts on the University, the Department has agreed to implement additional cuts for the coming year. Involvement in the Community Members of the Department continue to actively contribute to the scholarly communities in which they participate as either ordinary members or officers (e.g. Secretary, Treasurer, VP, President etc.,) of their respective societies/professional associations. In addition, members of the Department continue to make ongoing contributions to government agencies at the provincial (e.g. Ministère de l'éducation, du loisir et du sport) and federal (e.g. Indian and Native Affairs, INAC) levels, international organisations (e.g. UNESCO), as well as NGOs (e.g., Canadian Council on Learning), local government, and of course local school boards and schools. In this respect, the Department has established strong traditions working with the respective communities it serves across a range of organisations and agencies. In particular, the outreach work conducted by the Office of First Nations and Inuit Education (OFNIE), in partnership with the various indigenous

17 communities it serves here in Montreal (Mohawk), eastern Quebec (Micmac) and in northern Quebec (Cree and Inuit), continues to provide mutual opportunities for teaching and research with these communities (see Appendix 12). Of equal importance are the professional development activities organised under the auspices of the Centre for Educational Leadership (CEL). Through its various workshops and Distinguished Educator Seminar series, CEL provides professional development opportunities for teachers, administrators, school board personnel and others involved in K-12 education. As noted in the CEL report (see appendix 10), this seminar series, along with its other research and development activities, has made major contributions over the past years by raising the profile of the Department within the educational community in Montreal, Quebec, and internationally. As this report documents, the Department will face a number of challenges in These are likely to centre on the following issues: Confront the challenge of declining resources including finances as the world-wide recession impacts the finances of the University; Introduce efficiencies in Department administration that will rationalise exiting structures and processes and that will lead to budget savings; In conjunction with DAUR, seek new and innovative ways to generate alternative lines of revenue to support existing and new programs and projects within the Department ; Continue to increase the success of faculty and graduate students in securing grants from tri-council agencies and other foundations; Support and build on the newly expanded MATL program for incoming students; Implement recommendations, both in terms of administrative structures and academic programs, made by the Faculty program review on undergraduate education ; Continue to collaborate with the Faculty of Science on developing initiatives in science education recommended by the Joint Advisory Committee on Science Education; Last, develop and improve its teacher education and research programs (i.e. B.Ed, MATL, MA and PhD) so that they continue to be viewed throughout Canada and internationally as models of innovation, visionary professionalism, and scholarship. In summary, therefore, DISE in its ninth year has established strong structural/organisational foundations and has developed an equally strong collegial ethos that supports the ongoing emphasis on excellence in emphasising research and scholarship, inter-disciplinarity, and the development of professional educators and researchers.

Special Events Orientation sessions for new students - PhD session September 7, MA session September 14, 2010 Ninth Annual Graduate Student Conference EGSS (Education Graduate Students Society) March Annual Grad Dinner April 22, 2010 CHANGES/NOTEWORTHY EVENTS ACROSS DISE GRADUATE PROGRAMS Program revisions The major M.A. program revision begun in was finally approved by the University in late August 2009 (some last-minute changes were requested after the sequence of approvals in Spring 2009). As of September 2009, all entering M.A. students who applied to the M.A. in Curriculum Studies or the M.A. in Culture & Values in Education in fact enrolled in the new M.A. in Education and Society program. This program has two streams, corresponding to the former programs: Teaching, Learning and Curriculum, and Culture and Values in Education. The program change introduces more elective room into this disciplinary area, to reflect the wide range of interests of both students and faculty. As of December 2010, response to the program change has been positive. In Fall 2009, a change was made to the list of courses that may be taken by Ph.D. Educational Studies to fulfill the 3-credit Research Methods requirement. In addition to the three 700-level courses already approved, approval was requested and obtained for three 600-level courses (see calendar). This introduced needed flexibility into our PhD program. A minor program change was made to the M.A. program in Second Language Education. The Research Methods course formerly required for all MA-SLE students, EDSL-664, was experimentally, then formally replaced by EDEM-690, the Research Methods course common to all other DISE MA programs. This had the effect of bringing the MA-SLE more into line with our other programs. New program: In summer 2010, an important new program, the MATL (for Master s of Arts in Teaching and Learning) was approved by CAPFE and enrolled its first cohort. As the Graduate Program Directors of DISE are not responsible for this program, it will not be further discussed here. There are, however, important implications for staffing and eventually for faculty hiring across graduate programs in DISE.

86 Graduate funding: It is very clear to all faculty, staff and graduate students that DISE graduate students are very underfunded and do not have the kind of access to department-internal funding that other institutions and some other departments at McGill are able to provide. This is beginning to have increasingly serious consequences for our recruitment and retention of high-caliber graduate students, many of whom decide to go elsewhere if they can get better funding. While our students track record for prestigious external awards (SSHRC, FQRSC) has held steady over the past few years, with two or three students per year receiving awards in each category on the first selection round and usually one or two more qualifying on the second round, these awards only benefit a very small proportion of our graduate students (i.e., fewer than 10 per year out of an enrolment of over 200 thesis students). Partly in response to the crying need for more funding, in Winter 2010, DISE once more made changes to the graduate funding put in place by GPSO, as follows: This year the greater portion of the DISE portion of the Principal s Graduate Fellowship envelope was broken up into much smaller packages than formerly, of $1000. This was done in consultation with EGSS. A one-page statement of financial need was requested as an application for these funds, without discrimination between new and continuing students. Between 35 and 40 people (nearly all who applied) received this amount. The procedure of selection and distribution took longer than usual, as the eligibility criteria used by GPS conflicted with the less restrictive criteria DISE had hoped to use. In the end, students beyond MA2 and PhD5 were not allowed to receive any funds, and the awards set aside for people in those categories were reallocated. The McConnells were awarded in amounts of $4000 (smaller than in previous years), again, in response to student demand. The Provost s Graduate Fellowship monies, totaling $5000 for each new PhD student and $1500 for each new MA-Thesis student, continued to be given directly to students in those categories. Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office regulations on Time Limitations (see GPSO policy regarding timely completion of degree requirements) is now being much more strictly enforced than in previous years. This has had repercussions for a number of students in or past PhD7 / MA4. Incoming and continuing students are being made aware of the regulations and closely followed. Staffing: The staffing situation in the DISE graduate program office was at crisis point for a crucial part of the academic year. The departure on maternity leave of Mary Kate Wallbridge in September 2009, who had been a valued manager since September 2007, followed by the decision at HR level to terminate her position, made it impossible to hire someone to take over her duties. As a result, Arwen Fleming, an extremely competent clerical worker, was so overworked from late September 2009 on that she became seriously ill and was obliged to leave her employment, permanently as it turned out, in mid-december It is very much to Ms Fleming s credit that despite a state of increasing ill health over two months that ultimately culminated in complete breakdown in early December, she was nonetheless able to make sure that PhD defenses were scheduled and carried through during this period, enabling several students to graduate, and, in some cases, move on to fulltime academic employment, on schedule. The negligent and abusive position of McGill HR personnel during this time is on record in Ms. Fleming s HR file and can be corroborated by consulting her union representatives. The same negligence on the part of HR led to a period of one month (from mid- December 2009 through mid-january 2010) during which the DISE graduate office was not staffed at all. Other DISE clerical staff, notably Alina Broccoli, who is greatly to be commended, stepped into the breach and did a huge amount of work for which they had received no formal training (in addition to their regular duties) but there was no regular graduate program coordinator in place until Michael Larivière arrived to fill the position on January 18, After the arrival of Mr Larivière, whose work has been superb, and the arrival back of Catherine Hughes, who came out of retirement part-time around the same time to help her former employer (and is still in place as of December 2010, because she is needed), the processing of student files gradually began to return to normal. As of December 2010, however, we are still experiencing fall-out from the very difficult few months between September 2009

87 and February 2010, a period for the first four months of which the sole academic Graduate Program Director, M. Hoechsmann, was new in the position and working under very unfavorable staffing support conditions. It should be noted that as of mid-january 2010, in addition to performing the very extensive duties for which she was persuaded to come out of retirement, Ms Hughes was of incomparable assistance in helping to train Mr Larivière and also, from December 2010 on, Jennifer Element, who transferred to the DISE graduate program area from Student Affairs (Education) in December 2010, and will take over Ms Hughes duties as coordinator of the Graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership and the MATL, as a regular, not a casual, employee. We were grateful for the permission that was granted to hire Ms Hughes to step in at short notice in January 2010, to hire Ms Element to replace her in a regular position as of December 2010 on, and also to hire Jesse Van Den Berg and Vanessa Bridgman as casual clerical staff to help through the Admissions process for the first months of We could not have managed without any of them. However, it needs to be clearly stated that a department with around 300 graduate degree students (of whom around 200 are thesis students) and another 100 graduate certificate students, in a large number of high-profile, internationally respected programs, cannot be expected to administer all these programs with only one permanent coordinator and a fluctuating number of casual staff whose continuity and job security is near nil, as we were expected to do for almost the entire calendar year of The situation of the graduate program directors not to mention the students at times became completely untenable (M. Sarkar made several attempts to resign in December 2009, upon realizing that there would be no graduate program coordinator in place in January when she returned from sabbatical; these attempts were forestalled by the Chair s compassion and vision, but her resignation letters are on record). We deplore the short-sighted costcutting measures that led to this situation, and trust that in future, longer-term vision will be allowed to prevail (although, frankly, given current McGill policies, we aren t optimistic). Program directorship: Mela Sarkar was on sabbatic leave for the period July 1 through December 31, 2009, during which time program direction Pro Tem was assumed by Michael Hoechsmann from September on. He has continued as co-director from the Winter 2010 term on.

91 APPENDIX 10: CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP Centre for Educational Leadership Department of Integrated Studies in Education Faculty of Education Annual Report June 2009-December 2010 Submitted by: Professors Lynn Butler-Kisber & Sylvia Sklar January 2011

92 Section I: Description of Unit The Centre for Educational Leadership (CEL) is situated in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE). It promotes the continuing professional development of teachers, policy makers and educational leaders by providing them with state of the art, credit and non-credit programs based on ongoing research. It actively outreaches to the local educational community and beyond by responding to needs, and by providing flexible, innovative and quality services. CEL makes a concerted effort to link local and international research and development activities associated with leadership, professional development, student engagement, educational change and school success. The underlying principles that guide the work of CEL are: Pursuit and development of broad-based notions of leadership Activities based on partnerships Outreach to the community Connection between research and practice Attraction of new populations Development of innovative initiatives. Lynn Butler-Kisber, is the Director of CEL, and has the programmatic and financial responsibility for CEL with a primary focus on research, and international projects. Although not part of her CEL work, she also initiated and directs the off-campus graduate certificate in educational leadership programs, now in their tenth year. These programs are operated out of the Department of Integrated Studies in Education. Because she has the responsibility for these programs and they are tangentially related to the Centre for Educational Leadership, annual information about these programs is typically included in this report rather than a separate one. The Associate Director, Sylvia Sklar, is responsible for the design and implementation of the non-credit professional development programs. Both work closely together to develop new initiatives and links to the educational community locally, nationally and internationally. Donna Wilkinson is the Administrative Coordinator of CEL. She carries a very full-time workload as she is responsible for managing the CEL office which includes arranging all of the bookings, materials, correspondence and financial aspects for the seminar series and projects, carrying out the day-to-day tasks of the budget, reporting and projecting the budget, and supervising research assistants on the various projects as well as work study students who are hired to help with CEL activities. Other staff members are appointed on a part-time basis as required to meet the financial, managerial, research and programmatic requirements of the activities in the Centre. Hiring is done by CEL within the policies established by the University. The Centre works with several ad hoc advisory groups from the Quebec educational system to help guide the design of professional development programs. These groups are composed of prominent educational leaders who are operating in school and non-school settings. These Committees are established by the Centre to explore areas of interest and concerns specific to our client groups, and as such includes teachers and administrators. CEL is a cost recovery unit. It pays 3/4 of the Associate Director s salary, and all of the Administrative Coordinator s salary. The Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE) provides ¼ of the Associate Director s salary. The DISE Graduate Certificate Co-ordinator, manages the off-campus, Graduate Certificates in Educational Leadership courses and works very

93 closely with Lynn Butler-Kisber in her capacity as Director of these programs. Since January 2010 Catherine Hughes returned from retirement to temporarily replace Arwen Fleming, who left suddenly on sick leave in December Arwen did not work solely for the Graduate Certificate Programs. She also supported the work done for all other graduate programs in DISE. Arwen s salary was paid by the Department as is Catherine Hughes s salary now. Additional salaries for casual and temporary staff are generated as required by the projects and programs of CEL. For all CEL s projects, graduate students are hired from the Department. For other office duties, CEL hires work-study students. In June 2009-December 2010, CEL generated a healthy return for the Faculty/Department from the enrolment of the off-campus Graduate Certificates in Educational Leadership (see below). Attendance at the Distinguished Educators Seminar Series was excellent between June 2009 and December We attribute this to the appeal of the programs and our presenters, and the need for professional development in the educational milieu. As a result, the returns from the seminar series were robust (see below). These were bolstered further by CEL s project initiatives that are described below. CEL continues to operate using a C1 cost-recovery budget that allows any surplus to be carried over into the next budget year. This allows CEL at its slowest period of the year (June-September) to cover the salary encumbrances that take place during the summer. The projected budget for and was prepared using very conservative estimates of the returns for each of these years. In it proved be a solid projection and covered salaries, benefits and all other expenditures and yielded a small amount that was carried forward into The Budget was submitted with the Department Chair s approval and received approval from CEL s financial officer. Because CEL has become more and more accurate in terms of estimated expenses, continues to submit conservative estimates of returns each year, and because of the returns for fall 2010, we expect that we will be able to cover our costs and still carry over some additional monies into Section II: Past Activities June 2009-December 2010 A. Projects: Since June 2009-December 2010, CEL s work continued to include ongoing local and international research and development activities and some new initiatives. Home Instruction Program of Parents of Youngsters Program (HIPPY): An efficacy study CEL completed Phase III, which was the final phase of a 3-year efficacy study of the Home Instruction Program of Parents of Youngsters Program (HIPPY) in Montreal funded by the Chagnon Foundation. HIPPY prepares home visitors to work with parents who in turn work with children on literacy development and socialization skills for school. The purpose of this qualitative project was to follow 11, three-year-old children as they progressed through three years in the program before starting school. The multicultural nature of HIPPY, Montreal (16 languages represented in the total group of HIPPY participants and the program is taught in both French and English) made this research context a particularly interesting one. The principal investigator was Lynn Butler-Kisber, and the co-investigator was Sylvia Sklar. During this final phase of the study, a former doctoral student, Joanne Kingsley, an Associate Professor at Bishop s, became a co-investigator and worked closely with Lynn and Sylvia on the analyses and final report that was submitted in August LEARNing Landscapes Journal In 2007, Lynn Butler-Kisber, Director of CEL, was invited by Mr. Michael Canuel, CEO of LEARN to be the founding editor of what was a new open

94 access, peer-reviewed, online journal that is called LEARNing Landscapes. Her task was to conceptualize the format, content, and audience for the journal and develop the underlying principles guiding the journal which are partnership, collaboration, inclusion, and attention to multiple perspectives and voices. From the outset the intention has been to link theory and practice and to showcase leading educational ideas, research and practices in Quebec, and beyond, by including articles, interviews, visual representations, arts-informed work and multimedia texts. The fourth issue entitled Curriculum: Innovations and Issues became live online on July 01, 2009 and the fifth issue on Literacy: Multiple Perspectives and Practices was published in November A launch was held for issues four and five and attracted some 70 educators from the local educational milieu and generated a very positive response. The journal was also exhibited at the Canadian Society for Studies in Education Conference held at Concordia University in May 2010 which sparked a good deal of interest and has increased the response to the calls for papers. In each issue we attempt to use the technology in somewhat different ways. For example, in the fourth issue a reflective interview with one of the authors about his paper appears on live stream and all the abstracts of the articles can be heard in authors voices rather than just read. In the fifth issue cycle three elementary children were interviewed about their thoughts on literacy and they too are on a live videotaped stream. Commentaries from John Willinsky, Susan Church, Vivian Paley, and Anne Haas Dyson added to the content of the issue. The sixth issue, dedicated to long-time activist Muriel Duckworth went live on June 30, This is a special issue of invited, eminent Canadians who talk about their experiences, ideas, and visions for education and includes such authors as Paul Martin, David Johnston, Sheila Watts- Cloutier, among others, as well as the Deans from eight faculties of education across Canada. The seventh issue was published in December 2010 on Poetry in Education. This publication includes commentaries from Maya Angelou, Jane Hirst, and Laurel Richardson among others, as well as an interview with Sophie Hillcoat, a grade-six student and budding poet. The eighth issue for spring 2011 will be on Inquiry in Education and the ninth issue due out in late fall 2011 will be devoted to brain research and education. The McGill/Dominican Republic Field Experience Project In May 2008, Lynn Butler-Kisber and Sylvia Sklar were hosted by Claudia Defillo, Principal of the Americas Bicultural School (ABC School) in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Claudia originally graduated with an M.A. in Second Languages in the late 1980s and has been a member of the Faculty of Education Advisory Board. At that time meetings were held with members of the school administration to initiate a collaborative project to send student teachers to do their intensive field experience semester at the ABC School using the model that CEL used previously for ten years in Turks and Caicos Islands. (In this approach, students pay for their airfare and daily expenses. Generously, the ABC School provides the accommodations in an apartment hotel adjacent to the school.) A letter of agreement was drawn up and vetted by McGill and Santo Domingo lawyers, and signed by Claudio Defillo and the Faculty of Education. This project got underway in winter Melinda Doucet and Veronique Dubé, fourth-year elementary Bachelor of Education students, were selected from some 17 applicants and had very successful experiences at the ABC School. They were placed in Sylvia Sklar s fourth-year Professional Seminar course and she was able to prepare them in an ongoing way for their trip, and she kept in touch with them via Skype and throughout their experience. These students also participated in a two-part orientation for the trip under the direction of Lynn Butler-Kisber and Fiona Benson, Director of Student Teaching. The intention was to increase the number of students to three or four for the winter 2011 field experience. Unfortunately, a Faculty decision was made to exclude this principal from the selection process in order to be fair to future

95 international partners who might want to be part of a similar selection process. Given the contextual and cultural sensitivities that the principal was able to bring to the process last year, and the truly collaborative partnership that this principal felt engaged in, Ms. Defillo decided not to offer places to students for winter Lynn Butler-Kisber hopes that this decision can be revisited in the future in order to re-establish this partnership and continue the interesting work that came out of these student placements in The Quebec/Dominican Republic International Professional Learning The Quebec/Dominican Republic International Professional Learning Community Project (IPLC), proposed by CEL and funded by school boards and LEARN began in November It was built on the model developed by CEL for the Quebec/UK IPLC school leaders in It has involved nine leaders from Quebec schools and ten from Santo Domingo. This group of leaders as well as two delegates from MELS and LEARN worked alongside Lynn Butler-Kisber and Sylvia Sklar, and a consultant and university administrator from Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo (AUSD). The work generated a professional learning community, and the group experienced a one-week visit to each other s schools (January 2010 and April 2010), and communicated electronically with each other. In each context the group had the opportunity to be hosted by the ministries and universities. During the April visit in Montreal, a reception was held at the McGill Faculty Club and the delegation was welcomed by the Consul General, Mrs. Raquel Jacobo Jaar, and by McGill Professor Morton Mendelson, Associate Deputy Provost, Professor Hélène Perrault, Dean of the Faculty of Education, as well as by Mr. Laurent Trudel, Coordinator of the Quebec/Canada Entente, MELS. The IPLC members are now completing photo-journeys of the experience. These photo-journeys have been accepted for presentation at the AAESQ leadership conference in spring 2011, and will be used to build leadership capacity in the Quebec English language school system. As part of the project links have been made between the ministries of education in Quebec and Dominican Republic, McGill and AUSD. Some interesting possibilities/partnerships should emerge from these links. The Quebec/Vermont International Professional Learning Community Project The successful experience of the Quebec/Dominican IPLC has generated enthusiasm for a similar project that was initiated in fall 2010 and will take place in winter 2011 with some changes. It was decided it would be interesting to focus on elementary principals only instead of a mix of elementary and secondary. In this instance school boards have selected five elementary Quebec principals from the public sector and one from the independent schools to participate in an IPLC experience with six elementary principals from Vermont. Once again the project is funded by LEARN and the participating school boards (Lester B. Pearson, English Montreal, Riverside, Eastern Townships, and Central Quebec School Boards and QAIS) and will be directed by Lynn Butler-Kisber. It will involve an exchange of visits and ongoing collaborative working groups to develop new understandings about school leadership. The products of the work for this project will be virtual common place books that will synthesize lessons learned across the groups and make the sharing of these experiences easily accessible within Quebec and beyond. The McGill/Bronfman Jewish Education Council Project In May 2009, Lynn Butler-Kisber met with members of the Bronfman Jewish Education Council who have decided to rekindle the relationship that developed when leaders from their schools were involved earlier in the off-site courses in the graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership Programs. In fall 2009 BJEC selected 15 leaders from their system who would apply

96 to the certificate program and be part of the cohort in this project. Under the auspices of CEL this project uses the graduate Certificate Programs as a central strand in leadership development. This credit work is being augmented with a mentoring program and with other non-credit with the intention of building a community of practice. The project got underway in fall 2010 commencing with a one-day institute on leadership and the students first credit course, Leadership in Action (EDEM 610) taught by Professor Ted Wall. Simultaneously, a team of four mentors headed by Jim Mackinnon from Lester B. Pearson School Board has begun ongoing work with the BJEC leaders in small mentoring groups. There is a high level of engagement among the group in the cohort and we are looking to the learning we will gain about professional development from this experience. The CIDE/McGill/University of Toronto Vietnam Project In fall 2009 the Consortium for International Development in Education (CIDE) approached CEL to participate in the initial phase of what will be a five-year project in which Vietnam intends to modify its educational system. This initial phase of the project in September 2010 consisted of a 10-day professional development program offered to 22 visiting delegates from the ministry, universities, and the school system for five days at McGill and five days at the University of Toronto. The mandate included providing the delegates with an overview of the Quebec education system, teacher education and certification practices, exchange practices, mentoring, and related leadership skills, as well as visits to a secondary school and a vocational school. CEL used the model it has used for similar delegations from Trinidad and Tobago and Indonesia and what transpired was a stimulating week with these visitors. It is anticipated that this initial partnership with CIDE will involve additional work with CIDE and Vietnam. B: Graduate Certificates in Educational Leadership Since 1999 the Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE) under the direction of Lynn Butler-Kisber has been offering graduate, off-campus educational leadership courses to school boards in the greater Montreal area. The current number of school boards involved now totals six and approximately students at any one time. It is one of the largest graduate programs in the DISE. The rationale for this work has been predicated on the need to outreach into the educational community, to build networks of school leaders, and to develop capacity within the public school system by delivering high quality and relevant course work. To do this, adjunct professors with a minimum of an M.A. in Leadership and extensive experience in the field have been hired to do the teaching. Frequently these instructors have also taught leadership courses at McGill. They know the McGill teaching culture and can bridge these two teaching contexts. Each of the school boards has assigned a liaison person who is in charge of pedagogical services with whom Lynn Butler-Kisber collaborates in assigning instructors to courses and in choosing electives. This collaboration has increased DISE and CEL s communication with the boards and served particularly to heighten CEL and the Faculty s visibility in the school systems. The feedback about these off-site programs is extremely positive. The cohorts have become communities of learners which work together to use their learning to problem solve in their systems. The instructors are continually amazed at the quality of the work, the enthusiasm and the dedication of the groups. The school boards value and appreciate these partnerships with them, and are quick to turn to CEL for ideas and resources, in part because of the dual role Lynn Butler- Kisber plays as director of both the Certificate Programs and CEL. Over the years, we were approached by some of the more remote English school boards hoping to have their principals and potential principals take the graduate certificates. The problem was always the distance between schools within these boards. We knew we could offer easily off-site courses in one location. However, it was too costly for the boards to bring their personnel

97 together, and the technology that existed in the boards was never adequate enough to support other distance possibilities. This changed four years ago. A foundation set up by MELS called the Leading English Education and Resource Network (LEARN) funded by federal entente money was begun and was able to service the newer technology that MELS has been providing to boards. For the fourth year we have partnered with LEARN, which provided the technological support, to offer e-learn graduate certificate courses in the fall 2009 and winter From day one the model was a synchronous one where the instructor works online with the participants for three hours each week, and meets face-to-face with the group once per month, except with those students from Eastern Shores School Board. At least one course per term is offered online, and while there was initially some resistance among the local cohorts, the culture has changed and there is a growing demand for more e-courses. With a solid idea of what works well in these courses and why (the synchronous aspect is particularly important), we are began working with GPSO to try to expand and be able to attract national and international students. In 2009 we piloted the initiative with one student from North Carolina. A special flag was instituted to identify the student and Real Del Degan and Mary Jo McCullough worked out a one-time, deregulated tuition that was equitable for this international student who was never on campus. With this experience under our belts, we Lynn Butler-Kisber began working with the Dean s office and GPSO to work out the details. By December 2010 all the preliminary work was completed. Early in January, the announcement was posted on the website with a link to relevant details We are pleased to report that we are now ready to accept applications from more distant students for fall We anticipate that one of the first of these will be from a current Sauve Scholar who will be returning to the Philippines in May and wants to start the certificate online program in the fall. Tables 1a and 1b below give an overview of the 10 courses offered in and 6 courses offered for fall 2010 for a total of 16 courses in fall 2009 and in winter and fall The cost to the Department was $5000 per instructor plus approximately $24,000 in program operating costs for a total of $104,000 less a recuperation fee of $200 per student for the difference between the number registered and an expected class size of 20, an agreement made with the Boards 7 years ago. For this particular time period the recuperation amount was $13,800 making the net actual and indirect costs of the off-campus courses to be $90,200. During this period, a total of 253 students were registered in these courses. This number of registrations yields approximately $700 per student of which approximately 80% returns to the Faculty. Therefore we estimate that the annual return to the Faculty for June 2009-December 2010 from the Graduate Certificates in Educational Leadership courses is $141,680 and the net return is $ 51,480. It should be noted that these off-site courses attract a population of students locally and from a distance (Eastern Shores School Board, and Cree School Board) and during this the trial period, two international students. Also, it should be noted that most of these students would not be in the graduate certificate programs if they had to take their courses at McGill. The following tables show the courses were delivered in and fall 2010, as well as the courses that are now underway in winter It should be noted that course numbers that are italicized are those that were taught online in synchronous time three hours per week for 13 weeks.

Table 5 gives the anticipated admission numbers for winter Table 5 shows that our admissions are now once again higher than the number of students who are graduating from the Certificate Program rather than the reverse reported last year. We believe this trend will continue to fluctuate as some years there are more graduates than usual or more students opting to transfer to the M.A. program. The addition a new cohort from BJEC, and the potential for increasing numbers with national and international students may help to reduce this fluctuation.

This successful series has provided the bread and butter returns for this cost recovery unit. It has enabled CEL to pay salaries, cover most of the operational costs and seed the development of new projects. The following table provides an overview of the current strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing the Distinguished Educators Seminar Series as of December 31, Table 7: SWOT Analysis of Distinguished Educators Seminar Series as of December 31, 2010.

102 Strengths CEL has an established reputation for high quality and cutting-edge professional development. The growing clientele represents all stakeholders in the local education community and increasingly from Ontario. Feedback from participants indicates a higher level of satisfaction with the CEL seminars than the in-service offered by MELS and their school boards. Weaknesses The seminar series is presented primarily in English for a decreasing population of educators. The CEL lacks the resources needed to create and maintain a social media presence and related marketing strategies. McGill accounting complexities consume more than 60% of the Administrative Coordinator s time. In addition, presenters complain of red tape delays in getting reimbursed for expenses. Some say they will not return for further work at McGill. McGill is still not able to provide on-line registration for participants in the seminar series. Opportunities Social media sites provide new opportunities to attract populations from afar. The bulge of baby boomer retirements has led to an increase in the numbers of early career teachers and administrators who seek professional development opportunities. Budget cuts in school boards reduce available travel funds for out-of-town professional development. Threats broadcasts of publicity material are becoming more problematic as time goes on. Alternate marketing strategies using social media need to be developed as soon as possible. Declining populations in the Anglophone school system in Quebec continues to erode the potential pool of seminar participants. MELS has announced a 20% cut in travel allowances and professional development for the education sector. According to the Collective Agreement, Quebec s teachers with an undergraduate degree are under no obligation to participate in voluntary workshops or courses. There is no systemic incentive for attendance at CEL seminars. The Anglophone system is becoming a bilingual system with a growing number of francophone teachers who generally do not see McGill as a resource for professional development. MELS and school board in-service on the implementation of the QEP continues to compete with CEL for teachers release time and professional development budgets.. Interesting factors A small but steadily growing number of participants from Ontario are registering for the seminars. The main challenge facing CEL this year continues to be the deluge of offers of services from MELS to the school systems. These workshops are offered free of charge by MELS personnel to show teachers how to implement the QEP. So much professional development has been showered upon the school boards by MELS that many teachers feel overwhelmed and are not interested in seeking additional workshops elsewhere. The Distinguished Educators Seminar Series provides a cost recovery framework that enables CEL to increase the scope of its projects as it builds its place as a leader in professional

103 development locally, nationally and internationally. Teachers do not pay to attend MELS workshops while attendance at a CEL seminar in cost $ (GST and PST are included). In spite of this, CEL continues to offer a highly appreciated program for a growing and loyal clientele. The following table shows the financial trends of the Seminar Series over the past 7 years. It also shows the impact of union contract negotiations in and the resulting boycott of QEP related professional development on the seminar series and its steady recovery. Table 8: Distinguished Educators Seminar Series: Financial development over 6 years School Year Sept June Gross Revenue: Net (less taxes and expenses): Number of Registrations: Number of Seminars ,100 45,214 (32%) 570 N/A ** 89,390 25,858 (28%) ,770 66,967 (48%) ,615 56,574 (32%) ,072 59,768 (32%) ,955 96,555 (49%) months Sept Dec. 31, , ,059 (49%) **Year of QPAT collective bargaining and boycott of all professional development Avg. per Seminar The Gross Revenue column is made up entirely of registration fees including 14.5% in taxes. The tax rate will increase again in January The highest costs are honoraria, travel related expenses for presenters, learning materials, and hotel meeting packages. The figures in the net revenue column shows the amount leftover for contribution to overhead of CEL including salaries and benefits for Donna Wilkinson (Administrative Coordinator), Sylvia Sklar (Associate Director), Work Study Students, capital equipment and supplies. It should also be noted that the rate of participation in the seminar series has climbed quite steadily despite the decline of our target population of educators in the Anglophone educational community. Highlights of this past year included a successful two-day Institute for School Leaders on the topic of Distributed Leadership. The Institute was facilitated by Dr. Ted Wall, Former Dean of the Faculty of Education. Excellent feedback from participants suggested that an annual leadership institute would be well attended. On another front, CEL continues to develop delivery of professional development by distance. In collaboration with LEARN Quebec, CEL designed and pilot-tested a model for delivering professional development workshops using Live Classroom. In winter 2010, two online seminars on Differentiating Instruction were presented to teachers in remote schools including locations in the Lower North Shore, the Gaspé Peninsula as well as at Riverside and Lester B. Pearson School Boards. In December 2010, CEL presented a seminar on teaching A Social Skills Program for Student with Autism Spectrum and Communication Challenges via video conference. Thirty nine educators from the Eastern Shores School Board and Du Littoral on the Lower North Shore participated. Feedback was uniformly enthusiastic and the audience is requesting more such video conferences. Other sessions will be offered in 2011.

104 The Fall Seminar Series 2010 was the most successful. The themes for the series are pedagogy, classroom management, gender-based learning, brain research and differentiated instruction. Two new seminars designed especially for teachers in vocational and adult education settings were offered in November Finally, the development of online seminars using Live Classroom and video conference technology to make the Distinguished Educators Seminar Series accessible to teachers in remote areas will be a priority for the next academic year. CEL continues to develop strong partnerships with professional associations in Quebec as well as subcommittees of MELS and LEARN.

107 APPENDIX 11: FIRST NATIONS AND INUIT EDUCATION PROGRAMS February 18, 2010 December 2010 MCGILL UNIVERSITY FIRST NATIONS AND INUIT EDUCATION TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS JUNE DECEMBER ANNUAL REPORT Donna- Lee Smith, Director

108 FIRST NATIONS AND INUIT EDUCATION TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS JUNE DECEMBER Prepared by Donna-Lee Smith Director, First Nations and Inuit Education / Teacher Education Programs January 15, 2011 Section I v MISSION STATEMENT The principal mandate of the Office of First Nations and Inuit Education (Teacher Education Programs) is to coordinate the work which the Faculty of Education carries out in partnership with various Aboriginal communities and institutions throughout Quebec and Eastern Canada. FNIE collaborates with the Kativik and Cree School Boards, the Kahnawake, Kanesatake and Naskapi Education Centres, to deliver community-based teacher education programs, which lead to initial teacher certification, as well as further professional development. FNIE also delivers a combined campus / community-based Bachelor of Education Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option, which leads to general certification. FNIE works with departments in the Faculty to meet the needs of First Nations and Inuit education students who study on campus. As well, the Director carries out participatory research providing communities, schools, and the office with information about issues pertaining to Aboriginal education. Finally, FNIE s mandate includes sensitizing non-aboriginal people to the educational needs of Canada s First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. (Please see Appendix I for map of former and current partners.) v ACADEMIC STAFF Donna-Lee Smith, MA, Faculty Lecturer Director, First Nations and Inuit Education (Teacher Education Programs) Section II THE OFFICE OF FIRST NATIONS & INUIT EDUCATION v Who we are:

109 First Nations and Inuit Education (FNIE), based in the Department of Integrated Studies, Faculty of Education, has been delivering community-based teacher education programs for over 30 years; we also hold a McGill campus-based Summer Institute every second summer. We are moving towards having FNIE students spend more time on campus in order for them to benefit from the McGill experience. Currently we have a new initiative with the Cree School Board for a delivery of the Bachelor of Education Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option; this full-time program will have a combined delivery of years 1 and 4 in the northern Cree community of Waswanipi, and years 2 and 3 on campus in the Faculty of Education. We also have a new initiative with the Naskapi Education Centre in Kawawachikamach where students are in a full-time Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Education, with the goal of ultimately entering the Bachelor program. The students will come on campus for Summer Institute sessions throughout their program and will undertake several practica outside their community. v Staff: Director: Donna-Lee Smith Student Advisor: Tina Schiavone Program Assistant: Sheila McCulley Practicum Coordinator: Ellen Wernecke v Programs: All FNIE programs are for credit and are offered in partner communities, or in a combined community-based / campus-based delivery. Through the Faculty of Education, FNIE offers: B ED Kindergarten/Elementary: First Nations and Inuit Studies Option (120 credits); leads to general certification (combined delivery) Through Continuing Education FNIE offers: Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit (60 credits); leads to certification to teach in a First Nations or Inuit school (community based) B ED for Certified Teachers (90 credits; combined delivery) Certificate in Aboriginal Literacy Education (30 credits; community based) Certificate in Middle School Education in Aboriginal Communities (30 credits; community based) Certificate in Aboriginal Education for Certified Teachers (30 credits; community based) Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Student Personnel Services (30 credits; community based) Certificate in Inclusive Education (30 credits; combined delivery) v What we do: The Director of FNIE and the Student Advisor meet one on one with the partners several times a year to discuss the profiles of the students and to choose courses best suited for the majority of participants. Names of possible instructors are put forward on a priority list, and the Director undertakes contacting them until a candidate is found who is available to teach in the community. The outlines are submitted to FNIE and vetted by the Director, who often works closely with the instructor to ensure the outline meets the requirements of both McGill and the partner. If it is a first-time FNIE instructor, the Director interviews the candidate to assess suitability for work in an Aboriginal community and sensitizes him or her to Aboriginal issues in education.

110 The Director brings together instructors who will be teaching the same course, but in different communities; for example, the three Inclusive Education instructors contracted to teach in three different Cree communities in the Fall term met several times to work on adapting the course for the partner s needs and for the delivery mode. The three McGill instructors who taught various courses for the Kativik School Board in July 2010 also met to discuss course content and expectations. In general, FNIE : Coordinates community-based and campus-based course deliveries Creates and develops programs at the request of our partners Revises programs in collaboration with our partners to meet demands of the MELS QEP and the changing needs of the communities Adapts courses, for cultural and linguistic relevancy, with partners and instructors Appoints instructors Vets course outlines Processes admissions: paper-based Processes registrations: paper-based Provides academic advising Administers course evaluations Recommends students for graduation Conducts research on relevant Aboriginal issues Manages FNIE finances work with a self-financing budget Advocates for FNIE through participation in internal and external committees and presentations at conferences Seeks new partnerships Hosts FNIE Summer Institute every 2 nd year Hosts Steering Committees twice / year Hosts social events, such as graduation celebration and pizza night v ACHEIVEMENTS Through FNIE programs and Summer Institutes, our Aboriginal students become skilled in both traditional and mainstream knowledge. Many of the courses are taught in the heritage language by Aboriginal instructors; all courses delivered in the Kativik School Board are taught in Inuktitut, using qualified Inuit instructors co-teaching with non-aboriginal instructors. Other FNIE partners offer language courses and cultural skills courses in their heritage languages. Both our partners and FNIE recognize that our graduates act as role models in their communities, giving youth guidance for future academic success. Research has long proven the success rate of community-based programs, and the continuous flow of graduates from our programs supports the research. From the Summer term 2009 to the Winter term 2010, we saw the successful delivery of 131 courses, with 1114 registrations and 22 students proudly graduate from our programs. (Please see Appendix II for a complete list of communities, courses, instructors and enrollment.) In June 2010, FNIE began a pilot project with the Cree School Board: A new cohort of Cree students came to McGill for an Orientation Session. They had completed applications for the fulltime B Ed Kindergarten/Elementary: First Nations and Inuit Studies Option and were preparing to enter the program as mature students. In order to be admitted into the program for the Fall term,

111 these students were required to pass two summer courses with at least a B. Year 1 of their program is currently taking place in the northern community of Waswanipi; years 2 and 3 will be on campus, with year 4 back in Waswanipi. This program, developed in collaboration with our partners, is both bi-lingual and bi-cultural, and leads to general certification. The Cree School Board and McGill University are working diligently toward the academic success of this cohort; it is the first time the CSB has had full-time students. In September 2010, FNIE began a program with its newest partner: the Naskapi Education Centre. A cohort began a community-based, full-time delivery of the Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Education. The intent is to have the graduates of this program go on to complete the B Ed Kindergarten Elementary: First Nations and Inuit Studies Option. In September 2010 eight Mohawk students were accepted into the B Ed Kindergarten Elementary: First Nations and Inuit Studies Option. They joined students in the regular B Ed program on campus, and took Mohawk language courses and cultural skills courses in their communities. Graduations Included in FNIE s recent success are the 22 graduates from our various programs: Bachelor of Education for Certified Teachers (7) Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit (11) Certificate in Middle School Education (1) Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Student Personnel Services (1) Certificate in Educational Leadership (2) At our Fall 2009 graduation luncheon we were pleased to host senior McGill administrators: Dean of Students Jane Everett and Associate Dean of Students Linda Starkey. Their words of praise spoke to the pride McGill University holds for its Aboriginal students, and how the institution works hard to support both community-based and campus-based programs. They congratulated the graduates, their families and FNIE and wished everyone ongoing success. For our Spring 2010 graduation luncheon, we were pleased that First Peoples House took over the planning and opened the affair up for all Aboriginal students across campus; it was a grand celebration with graduates from Education, Science, and Social Work in attendance. Family members and partner administrators, as always, gave heartfelt congratulatory speeches. The Fall 2010 graduation luncheon, held in the McGill Faculty Club, was again beautifully hosted by First Peoples House. The speeches, gifts and, yes, tears attest to the commitment FNIE students and families devote to teacher training education. Revision FNIE, its partners, and the Faculty of Education undertake ongoing revision to the programs: Bachelor for Certified Teachers In keeping with the MELS requirements, this program underwent revision to better align with the B.ED. Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option (BFNIE); the changes were presented to and accepted by both the Faculty of Education and the MELS. Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit In keeping with the MELS requirements, this program underwent revision to better align with the B.ED. Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option; the changes were presented to and accepted by both the Faculty of Education and the MELS. Certificate in Aboriginal Literacy in Education Prior to beginning the 4 th delivery of this certificate in Winter 2010, the Cree School Board requested a program revision; FNIE and its partners participated in the revision process.

112 Community Teaching Over the timeframe of this report, FNIE has sent many instructors to teach in its partner communities. As there is some difficulty in allowing full-time professors to teach beyond their course load, many of our instructors are graduate students, retirees, or contracts from outside McGill. They travelled to the following communities to teach a variety of courses, conduct student evaluations, and lead workshops: Waskaganish /Mistissini /Kahnawake /Kanehsatake /Kuujjuaq / Waswanipi /Kawawachikamach / and Chisasibi Community Visits by Director The Director undertook the following trips to teach courses, lead workshops, conduct research, attend graduations, and present at conferences, for a total of 56 days: Kuujjuaq, Nunavik (Inuit) Val d Or, Chisasibi, Waswanipi (Cree) Kawawachikamach (Naskapi) Kahnawake (Mohawk) Kanehsatake (Mohawk) Natuashish, Labrador (Innu) Angers, France Teaching In the Spring of 2009 the Director co-developed and co-taught Experiences in Communication with 2 Inuk teachers, Ulaayu Pilurtuut and Annie Tertiluk, for the Kativik School Board. The participants were McGill students enrolled in FNIE s B.Ed. for Certified Teachers; all are fulltime teachers in their home communities and teach primarily in the lower grades where Inuktitut is the language of instruction. The course was linguistically and culturally adapted to meet the participants needs and was taught primarily in Inuktitut, with all materials translated into the Aboriginal language. The planning took place in March and the course was delivered in May, in Kuujjuaq, Arctic Quebec. This method of planning and teaching plays an important role in maintaining the Inuit language and culture in Arctic Quebec. This is an important initiative as many Aboriginal languages and cultures across Canada are at serious risk of disappearing or have disappeared altogether. Children s books For the fourth time in the last two years, the Director was invited to work with the Innu nation in Labrador. Her children s storybook writing workshop was adapted to meet the needs of teachers in Natuashish (former Davis Inlet where a few years ago there was wide media coverage of children sniffing gasoline) and Sheshatshui. The workshop was delivered in English, but the storybooks were written in the Innu dialects used in the northern and southern areas of Labrador. The participants were Classroom Assistants working in grades K to 3 where Innu in the language of instruction. As well as writing the books, the participants also illustrated them; the final products are sent to Memorial University and 100 copies made of each book. The project was funded by a SSHRC grant under the direction of Professor Marguerite McKenzie. The participants herald this initiative as there are very few storybooks written in Innu. So far 17 books have been published, with another 8 in production. v RECENT INITIATIVES FNIE undertook the following initiatives in collaboration with its partners: Cree School Board In December 2009, funding was approved for a CSB cohort of 30 students to apply to a full-time delivery of the B.ED. Kindergarten Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Option. Recruitment posters, created by FNIE and the CSB, were posted in all 9 Cree communities. Over

113 40 candidates submitted an application package, which included: application form, letter of intent, CV, official transcripts, letter of recommendation (academic), letter of recommendation (professional), admission reply form, Quebec birth certificate or band letter and Indian status card, and permanent code data form. Because internet access in the north is often unreliable, applications for FNIE partners are still paper based. The Director of Admissions, Kim Bartlett, and her Office, have been most accommodating in this regard. The application files were reviewed by FNIE s Director, two Education Associate Deans, and the CSB reps, including the Coordinator of Teacher Training Programs, Debbie House. Thirty files were submitted to Admissions. For the first time in the history of the Cree School Board, a cohort of students is attending a fulltime BEd McGill program; and it is the first time in the history of FNIE that students are enrolled in a program that leads to general certification. It is a tremendous undertaking and, as with any pilot project, issues are expected to arise. To date the academic issues revolve around literacy skills in English, and the social issues revolve around settling into a new community. The CSB and FNIE are conducting ongoing research in order to improve both the current delivery program and the next one in Kawawachikamach Education Centre In late 2009, FNIE was approached by representatives from the Naskapi Education Centre in Kawawachikamach a community north of Schefferville, Quebec. This community had been in touch with FNIE over the past number years in hopes of having a community-based teacher training program, and FNIE s Director was pleased to meet with the community reps, plus Christie Brown from the MELS, to discuss the program and delivery costs. In May the funding was approved at both the provincial and federal levels for a cohort of 13 students to take a community-based program with summer sessions on campus. In June 2010, the FNIE Director travelled to Kawawachikamach to interview the more than 24 hopeful candidates for the Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Education. The program started full time in the fall, and, as with the CSB program, qualified community-based instructors were contracted to teach the Naskapi language and cultural skills courses, with McGill graduate students contracted for the other courses. v TEACHING AND LEARNING COMMITTEES Faculty First Nations and Inuit Education Steering Committee (Teacher Education Programs) FNIE s staff and partners meet Fall and Spring to share successes and concerns about programs, students, issues, and initiatives. Chair: Director, FNIE Teaching Education Programs The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee Members from across the Faculty meet regularly to revise undergraduate programs; UCC is a step in the revision for FNIE programs. Chair: Director of Undergraduate Programs First Nations and Inuit Education / Office of Student Teaching Practicum Committee Members from the Office of Student Teaching, FNIE, and DISE meet to discuss practicum issues. Chair: Director, FNIE Teaching Education Programs McGill University

114 Aboriginal Affairs Work Group Members from across campus meet to continue their work on the AAWG mandate: to increase recruitment and retention of Aboriginal students. Chair: Dean of Students, Jane Everett Social Work Aboriginal Steering Committee Members meet regularly to discuss concerns about community needs, program delivery, and language issues. Chair: Director, School of Social Work Principal s Award for Excellence in Teaching Selection Committee (Continuing Education) v STUDENT SUCCESS The Kanesatake teacher training program has 5 students who saw their funding from FNEC slashed for their community-based Certificate program, forcing them to come on campus for the winter term 2010 and into the BFNIE. They all thrived in their courses, with 4 out of the 5 opting to continue in the BFNIE and the fifth (a student in her 60s) opting to finish with the Certificate. The 4 students took Children s Literature with the Director in the Winter term and gave highly acclaimed children s storybook presentations. They also thrived in their other courses, but it was apparent that some remedial help would be required for the students to pass the English language proficiency exam. The community funded a community-based course which was taught to the exam. As BEd students need to pass this exam before embarking on their third field experience, it was with tremendous relief that they all passed. With not many teaching positions available in Kanesatke, the BFNIE is the best option as it leads to general certification, allowing the graduates to teach outside the community. The auditorium in the Faculty of Education is named after Professor Jack Cram who began Native and Northern Education in the early eighties in conjunction with the Kativik School Board; it is his vision that drives the work of First Nations and Inuit Education today. The Jack Cram Award was established by his family in his honour and is given annually to a Kativik student. The recipient for 2010 is Ulaayu Pilurtuut from Kuujjuaq. The Director presented the award at the McGill / Kativik graduation ceremony which took place in July in Kuujuaq. v PARTICIPATION IN McGILL UNIVERSITY S MISSION FNIE, in its partnerships with Aboriginal communities, advances learning through teaching, scholarship, and service to society. We work in close collaboration with our students, giving them the best education available and providing service for which we are well suited by virtue of our academic strengths. v HONOURS Director: First Nations and Inuit Education / Teacher Education Programs (continuing) Chair: First Nations and Inuit Education Steering (continuing) Chair: First Nations and Inuit Education / Office of Student Teaching Practicum Committee (continuing) Member: Urban Aboriginal Strategy Network Committee (continuing) Member: Urban Aboriginal Strategy Network Committee / Education Subcommittee (new) Member: Selection Committee: Principal s Award for Excellence in Teaching (continuing) Reviewer: McGill University Journal of Education (continuing) Reviewer: Canadian Journal of Education (continuing) Board Member: Sleep for Success: Sustained Improvement of Youths Health & Learning Capacity by Rapid Translation & Dissemination of Sleep Research through School-Board Partnerships; McGill Department of Psychiatry / Douglas Hospital joint project

115 v RESEARCH The Director of FNIE s Teacher Education Programs is engaged in several research projects concerning First Nations and Inuit initiatives: Mi kmaw Kina matnewey Longitudinal Research Project A Longitudinal Study of the Mi kmaq Language in Band Operated and Nova Scotia Provincial Schools $65, / year This project evaluates language acquisition of Mi kmaq elementary students in band schools in Cape Breton by testing in both English and Mi kmaq. The project, now in its fifth year, shows unequivocal proof that students enrolled in the Mi kmaq immersion classroom benefit by having stronger literacy skills in both English and Mi kmaq throughout the early elementary grades.

116 v CONCLUSION v FNIE works in close collaboration with its partners, the Faculty of Education, and the MELS to deliver teacher education programs best suited to meet the needs of Aboriginal teacher trainees. With a combined delivery of community- and campus-based courses, FNIE s programs offer partners and students a unique opportunity to study in an Aboriginal community and to take advantage of the McGill campus experience. Few community-based teacher education programs exist across Canada and no other university in Quebec offers one and there is no other university program offered entirely in Inuktitut or any other Indigenous language. McGill University is justly proud of its accomplishments and its 30-plus year involvement in Aboriginal education.

126 MANDATE OF THE OFFICE OF STUDENT TEACHING The Office of Student Teaching is responsible for the planning and implementation of effective field experiences; approaching schools, school boards and other institutions for the placement of student teachers in the Bachelor of Education undergraduate programs. The Office collaborates closely with all partners in promoting McGill s Faculty of Education as an internationally recognized centre for excellence in teacher preparation. To this end, attention is paid to monitoring and assessing our practices as well as to field experience revision, development, innovation and research. This includes committee work at the faculty, inter university and ministry levels as well as professional development of cooperating teachers and field supervisors. ACADEMIC AND SUPPORT STAFF Director Fiona J. Benson, Ph.D. (Faculty Lecturer) Student Teaching Administrator (M-level support staff) Kate Hooton and Angela Mackenzie (maternity leave replacement) Student Placement Coordinators (C-level support staff) Diana Grafton, Maria Iacovelli and Riccardo Cardilli (medical leave replacement) Field Supervisors 84 part-time employees (retired master teachers and principals, graduate students, McGill course instructors) ensure the field supervision of all students enrolled in a Field Experience course. Casual staff Additional short-term clerical staff is hired to assist during overflow periods. PLACEMENT STATISTICS 1347 student teachers were placed in total 1020 cooperating teachers hosted the student teachers 84 University supervisors supervised the student teachers 24 Quebec school boards and 30 Quebec private schools welcomed student teachers B.ED MUSIC / B.MUS B.ED PLACEMENTS The B.Ed Music and B.Mus/B.Ed program enrolment continues to outstrip the availability of placements in Montreal s English schools and private schools. These schools have a very low number of full-time, qualified music teachers who are willing to mentor students. Of these, nearly all of the elementary-level programs are taught bilingually or in French. The situation is precarious, and the result will be that several students may not be able to complete their degree requirements due to a lack of placements, or available hours with music education specialists. This issue was brought to the attention of the program committee during the year and again in That being said however, the OST continues to exercise a high level of creativity and persuasion to secure robust field placements for these students.

127 FIELD EXPERIENCE COURSES OFFERED IN INSTRUCTOR: FIONA J. BENSON MATL

128 The Office of Student Teaching assumes all planning, communication, consultation and training (to all stakeholders) regarding the Internship and Professional Seminar courses associated with the MATL. The Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning program had 28 students in its pilot cohort starting Spring/Summer The placements for MATL Internship 1 were secured by the director and coordinated by Diana Grafton (Fall 2010). This process took considerable time, required more communication and was affected by variables dependent on the contractual status of each student some were on teaching contracts and other placements had to be found. The supervision had to respond to those different contexts as the director did to demands/expectations from school administrators. MATL students who encountered problems during Internship 1 demanded a great deal of the director s time (as most often administrators were involved). Ongoing training for the field experience supervisors selected for the MATL is more rigorous as mentorship is more demanding/ nuanced. See appendix A for all forms related to the MATL Internship Program. ACHIEVEMENTS AND INITIATIVES CONFERENCE PRESENTATIONS Benson, F. (October, 2009).

Benson Bernadette Hsu (private donor) $10,000 There is every reason to hope that this amount will be parlayed into an annual ongoing donation CONFERENCE PARTICIPATION Fiona J. Benson attended the CSSE/CATE Symposium and acted as the Chair and Discussant. May 30, Fiona J. Benson attended the CCGSE as a Discussant. May 31, STUDENT-CENTERED PERSPECTIVE VISIBILITY: OST presence at advising sessions and Faculty events has helped inform students about the protocols and procedures for Field Experiences, information about the role of the supervisory team, and encouraged students to approach the office with their questions, as well as promoting the OST website as a reliable source of information to all stakeholders. The website contains up to date placement calendars, yearly overview of FE dates, placement policies and

130 expectations per FE, assessment forms, assessment rubrics, MELS document and links, Professional Competency self-evaluation grids and rubric (individual and yearly overview); Notification of Concern, information about awards, international FE opportunities and application procedures, protocols for distance placements and very recently, a dedicated site for the MATL and for our FE supervisors all linked, as appropriate, to STEPS, the student teaching database. Of equal importance to the visibility of the OST is that of the work of the director around program design, innovation and excellence. Presentations by the director (solo and with other McGill colleagues) to CAPFE, LCEEQ and various other professional organizations across Quebec have been extremely well received and garnered the respect of these bodies. The work of the director has been influential in terms of accreditation of both the Undergraduate B.Ed. Program and the MATL. As well, the director of the OST has significantly increased her presence in schools in order to support administrators and veteran and novice (and prospective) cooperating teachers (refer to information pertaining to professional development workshops and new course initiatives/pilots for ). FE OUTCOMES: The director of the OST continues to meet with every student who is awarded an Unsatisfactory in any of the summative evaluation domains, as well as those students who receive a Notification of Concern during Field Experience. The director writes up an individual strategic plan for improvement (shoring up weakness) for each student and meets with said student prior to them embarking on the subsequent FE. TURNAROUND TIME ON ISSUES: Issues brought to the attention of the Office by students, cooperating teachers, principals or supervisors are always resolved in a timely and sensitive manner, with the first steps being taken by Office staff or the Director on the day the information is received. ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES EFFICIENCY SYSTEMS AND SUPERVISON COSTS: For a review of the systems utilized by the Office of Student Teaching, as well as a breakdown of supervision costs by Faculty members consult Appendix B. The supervision fee model above was in created for the Fall 2007 term, and was in effect for the academic year. In the academic year there will be 1 additional visit for FE 3 and FE 4 to support the professional portfolio requirement. OST STAFF: In January 2010 the C-level placement coordinator position held by Kate Hooton was converted to an M-level Supervisor position. Due to an extended personal leave, Angela MacKenzie was hired as a casual clerical employee from February April Due to Kate Hooton s maternity leave, Angela was then hired as a casual M-level employee from April 2010 September Tom Hein was hired as a casual clerical employee to fill the extended personal
