Sample text

We place the MDEd/GDDEd collaboration in the context of international and Australian developments; we describe its construction as an integrated inter-institutional venture from the establishment and work of the course team, through materials production and distribution, to marketing and teaching, and we then analyse our experience in the context of principles identified as aiding or inhibiting collaboration. The master’s degree (MDEd) is equivalent to one and a half years of full-time study and is designed to be taken over three years part-time through distance education.

This was clearly the case with the BHS proposal. The working group required a formal statement from BCIT that it was in support of the proposal at the level of the chief executive officer. The clear statements of support given by Gillespie and Mugridge at the second working group meeting were also important in setting the tone for the proposal’s consideration. Anything other than wholehearted support for the proposal from both institutions would have doomed it to failure. Ironically, given the concerns expressed in my 1987 memo to Calvert, the OU’s response was sometimes in danger of being little more than a ritual.

Interestingly, of the individuals involved in the meeting, those with the least concerns—Low, Neylan, and myself—had all had a broad exposure to healthscience education and planning at both the university and non-university level. We were all, to some extent, multicultural in our understandings. A revised proposal was presented to a second meeting of the working group in early December 1990. Gillespie and Mugridge attended the meeting to brief the working group as to how the BHS degree would fit into the overall mandates of BCIT and the OU, and to reassure the group that the proposal had the full support of both institutions.
