In this course, we have explored different aspects of the university context, such as roles of Universities, how universities (and you as a member of its community) fulfill their roles, and what learning in the university context looks like. Now is the time for you to demonstrate your learning of these topics by completing this essay assignment.
The Government of Alberta is launching the Alberta 2030: Building Skills for Jobs. This is a system-wide review of Alberta’s Colleges and Universities, scheduled to take place between 2020 and 2021. This review is going to create a strategy that guides post-secondary institutions in supporting students to develop skills and knowledge in-line with current and future labour market demands.
As you can see, the title and description hint to a specific leaning of this review: prioritizing the role of post-secondary institutions in creating the workforce of tomorrow. As a member of the post-secondary community, I invite you to write a (fictional) letter to your Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA), articulating your perspectives on how Albertan universities should position themselves as we move forward. Your goal is to persuade your MLA on how to support your view of universities through specific strategies that you will outline in your letter.
Specific points you can address in this letter may include, but are not limited to:
* What roles and goals that universities in Alberta should have?
* Why are these roles important?
* How can these roles and goals be achieved? Why would this strategy work?
