About the Program

The Bachelor of Education in Aboriginal Adult Education Program (ABADED) is designed to enhance the academic and professional abilities of individuals working with or aspiring to work with Aboriginal adult populations in a variety of educational/training contexts.

The ABADED Program incorporates Aboriginal learning preferences and relies on a wide refection of Aboriginal cultures and traditions. This community based curriculum model relies on qualified local Aboriginal educators to facilitate the learner's educational journey.

The five core courses are offered in a facilitated learning cohort model, face-to-face at various locations across Canada, however, it may also be offered online or through blended learning paradigms. Please note that in order for the program to run successfully in a given area we require that there be at least 20 – 30 applications received and we must reach a minimum number of registrations in each cohort (12 - 15) in order to proceed with the program. It may take some time before we are able to coordinate the program in your area
