CCSE acknowledges the generous support of CSSE, the Federation, and CIDA in sponsoring our International Education Conference on 29 May 2005, and regret any offence or inconvenience that our proposal to charge a third level of registration fees may have caused. In light of multiple and well-intended suggestions, CCSE has decided to cancel all Registration Fees for our International Education Conference.

Pre-Registration, however, is still vital for our on site planning and for those delegates who wish to be included in our Conference Proceedings.

We look forward to seeing everyone in London, and to our collaborative engagement in what will undoubtedly be a record-breaking Congress.

Their Influence and Development Within the Canadian Academy

29 May 2005: University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada


Conference Chair: Virginia Stead [OISE/UT]

Assistant Chair: Valentyna Kushnarenko [OISE/UT]


 CCSE extends its  deepest thanks and appreciation to CSSE, CFHSS,

and CIDA for their generous support of this collaborative international event.


Today, participants will discuss the growing internationalization of Canadian higher education, addressing issues of citizenship, academic environments, social exclusions, and equity. Opportunities and challenges for post secondary students are bombarded by domestic and international political agendas, all of which directly impact democratic development and the prosperity of diverse people and nations. Jointly, we will explore issues of international outreach and Canadian strategies for recruiting and supporting international academic development and sustainability within Canadian educational markets. Reciprocal benefits to Canada will accrue through the international dissemination of Canadian values towards human rights, democracy, and good governance. By June 30/05, the Conference Proceedings will be published on the CCSE Conference website (

Cape Breton University and UINR to Host
Canadian Aboriginal Science and Technology Society Conference

Sydney, NS) - The Cape Breton University (Cape Breton University) and
Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources (UINR) will host
Canada’s only
Aboriginal science and technology conference from
September 23rd to
25th, 2005
. For the first time in the history of this event, it will be
east of
Winnipeg – in Sydney, NS at the Membertou Trade and
Convention Centre, located in the First Nations community of Membertou.

  “It is fitting that we hold this conference in a First Nations
community that has been a strong supporter of UINR’s scientific
research initiative in Unama’ki,” states Charlie Dennis, Executive
Director UINR. “This is an opportunity to network with First Nations
researchers, students and role models from across
Canada and to
introduce our youth to First Nations technologists, scientists and
researchers.” Dennis also comments, “Being a strong scientific presence
in the Bras d’Or, UINR has a lot to contribute to this conference.
Along with the Eskasoni Fish and Wildlife ommission, UIRN has made
tremendous strides in First Nations led research in the
Bras d’Or Lakes
including the publication of studies such as The Status of Herring in
the Bras d’Or lakes, 1996-1997.”

In September 2004,
Cape Breton University and UINR submitted a joint
proposal to host the 2005 conference. The proposal was selected
considering the strong partnership between Cape Breton University and
Unamak’i and recognizing Cape Breton University’s Integrative Science
Program, led by Tier 1 Canada Research Chair Dr. Cheryl Bartlett.

Bartlett's research focus is considered unique globally, synthesizing
scientific knowledge from Aboriginal sources and orthodox Western
concepts. Recognized nationally for her role in the development and
implementation of a unique integrative science program (Toqwa'tu'kl
Kjijitaqnn/Integrative Science),
Bartlett's work brings Western science
and Aboriginal worldviews together. The program, housed within Cape
Breton University's Bachelor of Science Community Studies degree
program, is the only 'Integrative Science' program in the country, and
allows students to blend a suite of 21st Century science, Aboriginal
knowledge, cultural, social and environmental issues into their course
of study.

The Canadian Aboriginal Science and Technology Society (CASTS), formed
in 1992, is an organization dedicated to celebrating Aboriginal
scientific and technological success. An all-Aboriginal, all-science
and technology conference, the CASTS conference is intended to promote
science and technology fields as viable and attainable careers for
Aboriginal people.

With a theme of “The Spirit of the East”, the conference will focus on
caring for our resources and our environment, through “two-eyed seeing”
which supports the indigenous ideologies of science and technology.
This thinking is a cornerstone of both the Integrative Science program
Cape Breton University and on-going UINR initiatives. Moreover, the
theme supports CASTS overall direction of building on past conferences.

The material presented during the CASTS conference will be either
scientific research conducted by Aboriginal persons or scientific
research conducted on an Aboriginal issue. The conference will provide
an excellent opportunity for Aboriginal professionals to present their
work to peers and to network. Jaime Battiste, of the Eskasoni First
Nation, is the Conference Co-ordinator. Battiste will be working side
by side with CASTS, UINR,
Cape Breton University, First Nations elders
and community representatives to develop and execute events for

“I am pleased that
Cape Breton University, along with the Unama’ki
Institute of Natural Resources, will be jointly hosting this all
important event.
Cape Breton University has a history of hosting
discussions, cooperation and collaboration with the Mi’kmaq people
commented Cape Breton University President & Vice-Chancellor, John
Harker. “More than 25 years ago, Murdena Marshall and Sr. Dorothy Moore
devoted their attention to Mi’kmaq students and insured a place for the
Mi’kmaq people and culture deep within the soul of
Cape Breton
. Since that time, the work of Dr. Cheryl Bartlett has
provided a unique opportunity to interconnect aspects of western
science with Aboriginal traditional knowledge. Thus, it is fitting that
the university should be hosting such an event in celebration of
Aboriginal people, beliefs and skills.”

This event is expected to attract more than 400 delegates to
, leaving a significant economic impact on the community.

Corporate Diversity
By Frederick R. Lynch
Society, Volume 42, Number 3, March-April 2005

EXCERPT: The diversity machine's genius in converting business CEOs and confusing conservative resistance was in hitching the cause of ethnic diversity in organizations to massive demographic and market changes wrought by immigration and global capitalism. This strategy bridged mutual interests in globalization and immigration between what I shall term the Politically-Correct Left (PC-Left) and the Politically Correct Right (PCRight). The triad of demographic change, immigration and globalization energized PC-Left's egalitarian change agenda. But less understood is how valuing diversity theories disarmed and fatally compromised conservative critics.

A Portrait of Child Poverty in Germany
By Miles Corak, Michael Fertig, and Marcus Tamm
Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) Discussion Paper Number 1528, March 2005

ABSTRACT: This paper offers a descriptive portrait of income poverty among children in Germany between the early 1980s and 2001, with a focus on developments since unification in 1991. Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel are used to estimate poverty rates, rates of entry to and exit from poverty, and the duration of time spent in and out of poverty. The analysis focuses upon comparisons between East and
West Germany, by family structure, and citizenship status. Child poverty rates have drifted upward since 1991, and have been increasing more than the rates for the overall population since the mid-1990s. In part these changes are due to increasing poverty among children from households headed by non-citizens. Children in single parent households are by all measures at considerable risk of living in poverty. There are also substantial differences in the incidence of child poverty and its dynamics between East andWest Germany.

Post 16 Seminar Reminder -

A reminder to colleagues of a seminar for Post 16 Citizenship Education on April 25th,

Guest speakers will consider a range of issues within the post-16, and 14-19, context including: What is the nature of post-16 Citizenship education and how does this relate to pre-16 Citizenship education? How might Citizenship education be affected by proposed changes to the 14-19 curriculum? What examination courses are available within the National Qualifications Framework, and how can we use these to inform our work in schools? How can we deal with controversial issues within a post-16 context, and how might this differ from our work with pre-16 learners?

Review of DfES LSDA Post 16 citizenship pack -
16 Feb 2005 (Post 16 Strand)
Ralph Leighton has written a review of the recently published Video/CD ROM/Booklet pack from DfES/LSDA entitled Citizenship: what? why? how? In his review Ralph writes 'This pack, in the right hands, should do a great deal to address such uncertainty and insecurity about citizenship at all stages of secondary schooling as it offers an impressive range of exemplar materials, illustrations, key questions and strategies for delivery.'

Student Reflection - Primary Strand
7 Feb 2005 Citizenship education through community Action
Author - James Hadley (Tutor Cathie Holden) (
At first, this paper will provide an overview of the current debate about what constitutes ‘good’ community action. It will then outline my proposal and show how it fits in with the requirements of the OCR GCSE coursework, the National Curriculum and National Curriculum Key Skills. A justification for the project that I have selected will then be offered; identifying the benefits to both community and volunteers, along with contingency plans should they not suit the students’ interests and concerns. The lesson plans will focus on one example project and show exactly how the work will be conducted over three lessons, taking into account the needs of SEN pupils and Health and Safety requirements as well as practical considerations. Assessment criteria (that are linked to the OCR short-course, National Curriculum and National Curriculum Key Skills) for the project will then be outlined, followed, finally, by a critical reflection on the process of doing this assignment.

Induction Pack -
16 Feb 2005 Effective transition KS2-KS3
Author - Hilary Claire and Cathie Holden ()
This pack is designed for those interested in issues of progression and transfer between KS2 (ages 7-11) and KS3 (ages 11-14) in Citizenship Education. We hope that it will help secondary teachers, tutors on PGCE Secondary courses, and trainees themselves know about and value what is done in primary schools. At the same time, we hope to help primary teachers and trainees prepare their pupils for citizenship education in the secondary sector.

Book Review - Post 16
Strand 16 Feb 2005 Post-16 Citizenship: what? why? how? DfES/LSDA

Author - Ralph Leighton (
Canterbury Christchurch University College)
This video, CD-ROM and booklet pack has been produced to support staff development by illustrating good practice and answering the three questions in its title. While the ‘what?’ is perhaps open to discussion, given the lack of consistency and clarity nationally as to what might constitute post-16 citizenship, the ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ are very clearly and effectively addressed.

Commissioned Research Article - Primary Strand
17 Feb 2005 My 'Self' and the wider world: the Bristol Empire and Commonwealth Museum
Author - Penelope Harnett (University of the West of England)
Time is always limited for teaching humanities and citizenship on primary postgraduate programmes. At the University of the West of England, the humanities and citizenship course is allocated only 25 hours in total which provides a challenge to provide students with a sufficient knowledge and understanding of geography, RE, history and citizenship. The following report describes work undertaken during a humanities week where attempts are made to link learning across different subject areas within the humanities and citizenship. We report on humanities week in December 2003 and indicate how we developed the programme in 2004 in response to our evaluations.
