We are interested in investigating proven practices of other PSEs in integrating flexible delivery with traditional delivery in order to implement new strategies to reduce barriers and welcome more learners to our college. We decided to engage with Hanover because the type of research they complete is value-add to our work and provides us with the research and evidence base to support and inform decisions. Having a research team that gets to know our priorities, hopes, and dreams, and can build on the research and evidence base from one project to the next was a unique and important aspect of our decision-making. Additionally, access to the larger research database will be very helpful and informative for staff. Hanover has the capability to do all of these things while also providing the labour market analysis that is required annually to support program development, review, and renewal.
