McGill, Kahnawà:ke partner on Indigenous-focused Bachelor of Education program

August 22, 2018

McGill University’s Office of First Nations and Inuit Education and the Kahnawà:ke Education Center have partnered on the launch of the Bachelor of Education First Nation and Inuit Studies program. CBC reports that this marks the first time that the intensive program will be offered in the community. The program’s graduates will be certified to teach kindergarten and elementary students anywhere in Quebec. “It's so important that they have all of the course requirements needed for teaching but equally it's important that they have a clear understanding of how to teach through our own world view and perspective as Indigenous people,” said Robin Delaronde, director of the education centre. CBC | McGill
