The Integrated Learning Program (ILP) project was a collaborative curriculum development project undertaken in 2014-15 by Carleton University, Algonquin College, OCAD University, and George Brown College funded through an ONCAT project grant. The ILP model presents an opportunity to offer students with alternative pathways to undertake their postsecondary education through fully integrated university-college curricula designed to transcend institutional barriers and to deliver the learning outcomes of both a university degree and a college diploma in four years. Building from the experience and success of the Bachelor of Information Technology programs offered collaboratively by Carleton and Algonquin, the ILP project resulted in the development of a model template that can be used by any university and college in Ontario to develop an ILP degree that encompasses a college diploma. The template outlines the quality assurance, financial, administrative, and regulatory processes associated with the initiation, development, approval, and implementation of a new university-college collaborative degree program that incorporates an existing college diploma. Through small group discussion and critical reviews of the template, participants will be able to adapt and apply the ILP template to their particular institutions and institutional partnerships for the development of an ILP. Participants will also be able to identify key institutional stakeholders at each stage of the development process. Best practices outlined in the template will be explained and additional considerations for the development of this type of program will be shared.
