New Northern Saskatchewan Indigenous Teacher Education Program formed to help meet northern teacher shortage

President and Vice Chancellor Vianne Timmons (UofR), Director of Education Simon Bird (LLRIB), Dean Jerome Cranston (UofR) at the September 6, 2019 launch of the new NSITEP in Lac La Ronge, SK.

A new Northern Saskatchewan Indigenous Teacher Education Program (NSITEP) was launched on September 5, 2019, established in partnership between the Faculty of Education (University of Regina), Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI), and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB). The four-year Bachelor of Education program with its first cohort of students who began in fall (2019) is accredited by the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. It intends to help meet the demand for more teachers, especially Indigenous teachers, in Northern Saskatchewan. Located on Far Reserve of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band in the Mikisew School, the program is well-positioned to meet the accessibility needs of students located in the North.

April Chiefcalf, one of two Instructors employed by NSITEP says, “A significant aspect of the program is its ability to serve both First Nations and Métis students in the area. An ongoing teacher shortage in Northern Saskatchewan exists and with the closure of NORTEP, it seems community-based programs that are a joint endeavour between Indigenous communities and universities are being created to fill that void. NSITEP will be unique because it will emphasize Indigenous languages, cultures and land-based education.”

Morris Cook, NSITEP Program Head and Instructor, says the program is “so beneficial not only to the community, but also for folks from the greater La Ronge area…When you put your hand on the pulse of the schools in the North, there is a shortage. It takes a long time to get folks into remote areas, but if they are local, they are more likely to stay. The hope is that the teachers from NSITEP will return to the community for the rest of their careers.”

For Dean Jerome Cranston of the Faculty of Education it is significant that the program was developed in partnership with the leadership of LLRIB, the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan (MNS), and GDI, and thereby designed specifically to meet the needs of the LLRIB and Métis communities to educate their own people to become teachers in their own communities. Cranston says, the Faculty’s involvement with this partnership, “demonstrates how the Faculty of Education and the University of Regina are committed to more fully realizing their relational obligation to First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. NSITEP recognizes the sovereignty of Indigenous peoples, places a premium on learning within community and is an attempt to better balance the typically asymmetrical relationships that have historically existed.”

With 20 students forming the first NSITEP cohort, and a lot of inquiries from potential students, Cook expects it will be easy to fill the 13 Métis/13 LLRIB student quota each new academic year. Cook is hopeful: “Its a great time for the program to be in place. I look forward to continuing the work that has been done to get this program off the ground, to building up the capacity and educating lots of local teachers.”

Maîtrise en Éducation Française

“The studies to obtain the Maîtrise en éducation française allowed me to explore various issues connected with, among other things, curriculum, language, culture and teaching strategies, all from the perspective of minority and second-language education. I had the opportunity to question, analyze and take a critical look at both my own teaching and education in general. Taking courses with other teachers in situations similar to my own made this experience all the more relevant and enriching.” Claire St-Cyr Power, Learning Resource Teacher, Conseil des écoles fransaskoises Regina, Saskatchewan (Since 2012 Claire has been working as a secondment to the Programme du baccalauréat en éducation.)

 

MAÎTRISE EN ÉDUCATION FRANÇAISE

Are you a teacher working in French who has a desire for personal and professional growth? Have you been wishing for ongoing opportunity to learn from other professionals facing similar challenges? Consider pursuing your Master’s degree in French!

Through our Maîtrise en éducation française program, teachers working in French can continue their professional development in French, exploring issues specific to French language education in a minority setting.

Online and Summer Course Offerings!

This 30-credit, project-route program in curriculum and instruction consists of four online courses, two intensive summer institutes (in Saskatoon), and a project, and is completed over the course of three years.

With the program offered online and in the summer, our program is flexible and accessible, making it possible to earn a master’s degree without sacrificing quality or salary, and without over-loading your schedule. 

 

Cohort-Based Learning: Professional Communities of Practice!

As a cohort-based program, professional communities of practice are facilitated, enhancing the quality of learning experience for students by creating opportunity to work closely with colleagues who also work in French.

Lave and Wenger (1991; 2006) have coined the term “community of practice” to describe this essential aspect of social learning. “Communities of practice are formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain of human endeavor.” 

Cohort-based learning is an effective means for developing such communities.

Partnerships with Other Western Francophone Universities = Expanded Course Options CHOICES!

Because the program is offered in partnership with the La Cité, founding members of the Consortium des établissements universitaires de l’Ouest canadien pour l’offre de programmes, students can choose to take their online courses from other Consortium members: the Université de Saint-Boniface, the University of Alberta’s Saint- Jean campus, and Simon Fraser University. All of these partners will give students an abundance of courses to choose from, ensuring relevance and engagement.

All courses and assignments are in French.
