Conseil supérieur de l'éducation
 
The Conseil aims for a wider CIRCULATION of its publications

The Conseil supérieur de l’éducation considers it essential to share the results of its work within the education community at large, in addition to submitting briefs to the Minister of Education and filing an annual report on the state and needs of education. This is why its newsletter, Panorama, which outlines all the work undertaken by the Conseil, is widely circulated.

The briefs and the annual report, in complete and abridged versions, are sent to all the individuals and organizations directly concerned and, depending on the topic, between 3 000 and 5 000 copies are distributed. Since 1998, a range of general interest publications have also been made available on the Conseil’s Web site and can be downloaded. In addition to its regular distribution list, the Conseil also sends out publications on request.

Here are some key statistics concerning readership of the Conseil's publications:

  • Between April 1, 2001 and March 31, 2002, 8 755 requests for paper or electronic copies of Conseil publications were received; 7 617 applicants, 87% of the total, downloaded the electronic version of the document they needed.
  • During the same period, the ten most popular publications were as follows:

Éducation et nouvelles technologies. Pour une intégration réussie dans l'enseignement et l'apprentissage;

Aménager le temps autrement. Une responsabilité de l'école secondaire;

Pour une meilleure réussite scolaire des garçons et des filles;

Aménager le temps autrement. Une responsabilité de l'école secondaire (version abrégée);

Les élèves en difficulté de comportement à l'école primarie. Comprendre, prévenir, intervenir.

  • Since the publication of the 2000-2001 annual report on the state and needs of education, The governance of education: Market logic or political process?, 439 requests have been received for the complete version, and 81% of applicants downloaded the electronic version; 389 requests have been received for the abridged version, 86% for the electronic version. Half of the 25 requests for the English outline were for the electronic version.
  • Since the release of the brief Guiding students toward educational success: At the college level on April 10, 2002, 292 requests have been received for the complete version, and 86% of applicants downloaded the electronic version; 296 requests were received for the abridged version, and 93% of applicants downloaded the electronic version. Of the 13 requests for the English outline, 12 were for the electronic version.
  • 35% of the requests for downloads of the 1999-2000 annual report, Education and new technologies, came from outside Québec and Canada. Of these requests, just over 20% were from France.
  • The monthly average for hits on the Web site of the Conseil grew from 1 300, in 1998, to almost 5 800 in 2001.

New strategies

Over the coming year, the Conseil intends to increase the distribution of its work using new technologies which, as the statistics show, are increasingly appreciated by our readership. The Conseil's partners are asked to relay information by informing their members every time a brief is released and, if appropriate, by including a link to the Conseil’s Web site on their own Internet or Intranet site, or both, if applicable.

The briefs released by the Conseil are based on the work of its members, its committees and its secretariat, and it is important for the Conseil to ensure that this work is brought to the attention of all interested parties in the word of education.

We are also glad to receive suggestions. For example, after receiving a number of requests, the Conseil decided to produce an abridged version of its 1997-1998 annual report on the state and needs of education, Citizenship education. The abridged version will be distributed through the networks concerned, and will be included on the Conseil's Web site in early fall. Currently, the complete version of the report, and summary are available on the Web site.
