New JIBC Academic Plan

2010-2013 Academic Plan outlines JIBC’s educational philosophy and learning model, goals and priorities

JIBC’s Board of Governors has approved the Institute’s new Academic Plan. The 2010-2013 Academic Plan expands upon the vision, mission, values, trends and strategic directions outlined in JIBC’s 2010-2015 Strategic Plan, as they apply to teaching and learning initiatives, so those efforts are:

  • Grounded in the needs of the professions served by JIBC
  • Aligned across the Institute
  • Enhanced by an externally focused, cross-institutional foundation.

The Academic Plan begins by outlining four thematic goals:

  • JIBC will work toward increasing student access to programs regionally, provincially, nationally and internationally.
  • JIBC will expand academic programs to include both undergraduate and graduate studies and applied research.
  • JIBC will focus on inter-professional education programming that is flexible and response to future labour market needs
  • JIBC will focus on enhanced learning technology in all program areas.

The Academic Plan goes on to outline how JIBC’s Schools of Community & Social Justice, Health Sciences and Public Safety & Security, and the Institute’s Offices of Graduate Studies & Academic Services and Applied Research, will address the thematic goals.

The Academic plan also includes:

  • An Institutional Overview of JIBC
  • JIBC’s Educational Philosophy and Applied Learning Model
  • JIBC’s Educational Framework
  • Core and specialized competencies to be developed by students in JIBC programs
  • Goals and priorities of the Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching (TELT) initiative.
