Online listings for academic education technology jobs in North America

A UK colleague, who has worked for about a decade at various management and director levels in the UK academic sector (Education technology projects and services) is starting to consider moving abroad, but continuing the same line of work. His contact network in the education/academic sector outside of the UK is weak, and he doesn't know where to start looking online for positions in USA or Canadian Universities, Colleges, and Education Technology services and businesses that serve academia. Which are the good websites, and online listings, for these kinds of positions?

University Sexual abuse policies

I'm working on researching undergraduate University policies on sexual abuse and hitting a wall. Ideally I'm looking for the highlights and lowlights of Canadian university policies and how they respond to sexual abuse committed by students and/or to students. Is there a school out there that is really getting this right? Does anyone know where things are desperately wrong? I need some reliable sources to draw from, because what I've been finding has mostly been hearsay or dodgy.

US and Canada - HE compared?

Can anyone advise me on some specific comparisons between the US and Canadian University systems? I am in charge of internationalisation at a British University and we would like to investigate establishing academic partnerships and indeed possibly some direct recruitment in both countries. While we are roughly clear on how the US system operates, Canada is a bit harder to grasp. [more inside]

Best route to a nicer future

I'm about to finish second year of Software Engineering at my mid-tier Canadian university and have no intention of continuing any further. I'd like to transfer into one of the more prestigious colleges in the US, although getting in seems like a complete crapshoot given my current circumstances.

MA-J portfolio

I'm a young Canadian based in Toronto, looking to beef up my Journalism Masters application for next year with more clippings and media work. Can anyone suggest some places to pitch stories to? I'm thinking along the lines of CBC Outfront or Spacing magazine. I'm sure there are lots of places out there I haven't thought of. Thanks!

Should this Canadian pursue a philosophy degree in Belgium?

I am currently a philosophy student at the University of British Columbia (Canada). I've applied to transfer to the Institute of Philosophy at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven for their strong involvement with continental philosophy, and because I want to live in Europe. Will getting a Belgian degree significantly complicate things for me if I choose the pursue a graduate degree in North America? Will it be detrimental to getting in to a good school?

Canadian Film Essay

I'm right near the end of my first term in university for film studies. I'm totally stressed out and I'm not sure it's worth it. I'm taking this b*llshit class on Canadian Film and I can't think of a topic. Does anyone have a suggestion for an essay that someone could do? Note it only has to be about a Canadian film/films and doesn't have to say anything about Canadian films directly.

HELP!

Recommned universities in Ontario and Quebec

My girlfriend is planning on transferring to a university on the east coast next semester (Ontario or Quebec with preference for Quebec). She has little experience with French so anglophone universities are a necessity. Currently attending a university in British Columbia (the name escapes me), she has a 3.4 gpa and hopes to bring that up to between 3.5 and 3.7 by the end of this semester. What are good schools? Safety schools? [In Quebec] How difficult will it be to locate part-time employment without speaking much, if any, French?

[She's undecided on a major so ideally the school would have a good sciences or liberal arts program] [more inside]
