The point here is simple: if Canadian universities want to contribute to economic growth, they need to start actually paying attention to how their curriculum and pedagogy is improving skills. That’s the play. Not research. We’ve gone as far as we can go down that road for the time being. The game is now teaching, learning and outcomes. I know, it’s difficult, not least because its tough to focus on curriculum when some faculties punted the entire notion of curriculum in favour of a smorgasbord credit approach 50 years ago. But guess what? That’s the stuff that actually matters.
