On Wednesday April 15, 2015 team member Andrew Kretz successfully defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Exploring the effects of postsecondary experiences on STEM majors’ attitude towards entrepreneurship.” This thesis was supervised by Creso Sá. The team is very proud of Andrew’s achievement and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavours!
The Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education (CSSHE) has announced that Creso Sá will be this year’s recipient of the Research & Scholarship Award.
This award recognizes a practicing scholar on achievements and contributions to the scholarship on Canadian postsecondary education. The award will be officially conferred at the 2015 CSSHE Annual Conference taking place May 31 – June 2, in Ottawa.
In their newly released book, “The Entrepreneurship Movement and the University,” Creso Sá and Andrew Kretz examine how efforts to support entrepreneurial thinking and practice are impacting higher education in Canada and the United States. The book is the culmination of research undertaken by the research team since 2013, and has been published by Palgrave MacMillan.
From March 8-13 the Comparative and International Education Society is hosting its annual conference in Washington, D.C. Together with other members of the OISE community, members of Creso Sá’s research team will be attending and presenting at the conference. Julieta Grieco will be presenting her findings on a study of the Science without Borders program, Brazil’s major study abroad scholarship program. The project is entitled “Fostering international collaboration through study abroad scholarships: Lessons from Brazil’s Science without Borders program.” Daniel Hamlin is presenting on a paper entitled “Parental involvement policy in Canada: An analysis of 12,000 parental involvement programs.”
On Monday December 8th, 2014 Dr. Merli Tamtik received an Ontario Graduate Research Challenge Award from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. She has received the award for her research on policy learning in the European Union during her graduate work at OISE under the supervision of Creso Sá.
