Administrative Co-ordinator Janie Hodson 905-688-5550, extension 3971 Captain John DeCew 104 brocku.ca/aboriginaladulted The Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education offers a Bachelor of Education in Aboriginal Adult Education as well as a Certificate in Aboriginal Adult Education. Each program is designed to enhance the abilities of individuals working with, or aspiring to work with, adult populations in a variety of educational/training contexts. The Bachelor of Education in Aboriginal Adult Education incorporates Aboriginal learning preferences and cultural diversity. This community based curriculum model relies on qualified local Aboriginal educators to facilitate the learner's educational journey. Courses are offered in a facilitated learning cohort model, face-to-face at locations across the province. The Bachelor of Education in Aboriginal Adult Education program does not lead to an Ontario Certificate of Qualification. Aboriginal students interested in a teaching career in Ontario may be interested in the Native Teacher Education Programs, which lead to certification to teach elementary grades 1-6. These courses may be taken concurrently with the Aboriginal Adult Education program. For further information contact the Administrative Co-ordinator.
