The Prairie Symposium for Research on University Continuing Education: A Report
This paper presents a summary report of The Prairie Symposium for Research on University Continuing Education (PSRUCE) held in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 3 and 4, 1999. The SSHRC-funded symposium was attended by the Deans and faculty from four prairie universities (Alberta, Calgary, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan). The Symposium was designed to provide a forum for the four universities to assess the current state, future directions, and challenges facing research on university continuing education in Canada; and to strengthen continuing education research networks and collaboration across these universities. This report summarizes the discussion including the definition and prioritization of research issues, recommendations made for strengthening research, and concrete plans for action.
