Also, in order to ensure comprehensive training, the programmes offered cover all education aspects : foundations, disciplines, psycho-pedagogy, didactics, school management, measurement and evaluation, vocational guidance and educational technologies.
Training of a cohort of Cree students
From 2003 to 2010, UQAT worked with the Cree School Board (CSB) to develop and implement community teacher training. CSB representatives asked for a training program that would provide a cohort of students with regular teaching diplomas when they graduate.
Undergraduate short program in teaching a second language in an Indigenous context
As part of the Yawanda research project: Revitalization of the Huron-Wendat language (Dorais et al, 2007 à 2012), the First Nations Education Council (FNEC), on the initiative of Wendake school and with the collaboration of Pikogan school, asked UQAT in 2007 to develop a training program for teaching a second language in an Indigenous context. This language must be Indigenous and no longer spoken or threatened with extinction.
