If education is a business, shouldn&rsquo;t we know what we are paying for?</p></em><br /><br /><p> This document is a copy of the cyclical unit review performed by the University for the SoA in spring of this year. The result of the review may or may not have been the forced resignation of Professor Michael Jemtrud - an visionary individual who was making important and progressive changes within the curriculum of the school. Given that this is such a positive assessement of Jemtrud and his work over the last four years, it begs the question - who were the individuals who had lost faith in his leadership abilities? was this perhaps more because they were threatened by his agenda? and where does the school go from here given that the new director has yet to make a public presentation of her particular vision for the school ?</p> From the School Blogs: On Loyalties Divided (re: sacking of Michael Jemtrud at McGill) Paul Petrunia 2011-06-26T12:03:36-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="383" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>An institution isn't just a logo, a set of buildings and protocols, and the legal and economic capacity to grant degrees, hire employees, and command public attention. It's not a means to an end&mdash;a place where you cough up your time, money, and effort in exchange for other goods, such as credentials or a salary. An institution is built on traditions, community, and relationships built one at a time between the people who make themselves a part of it. It is a family, of sorts.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html><head><meta></head></html> From the School (Live) Blogs: Georg Vrachliotis at 'The Virtue of the Virtual' at McGill University Paul Petrunia 2011-05-18T18:55:49-04:00 >2011-05-18T18:56:15-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="290" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Very excited to be back in Montreal for the next few days, for McGill School of Architecture's conference, 'The Virtue of the Virtual.'</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html><head><meta></head></html>
