Effective teachers for successful students: An investigation of the preparation and resiliency of Northern educators

The aim of this project is to respond to the needs identified by the National Inuit Committee on Education (NICE) from which the ArcticNet call was derived. Building on research and educational reform work currently being done in Inuit Nunangat, this project will generate evidence of promising practices in Inuit specific teacher education and in the ongoing support for Inuit teachers to transition into education leadership. In partnership with the four Inuit regions we will investigate what brings Inuit into the education profession, how Inuit teachers are trained and what supports and professional learning are and/or need to be accessible, to ensure resiliency, retention and the progression of Inuit teachers into educational leaders in schools.
