Living Alongside: Teacher Educator Experiences Working in a Community-Based Aboriginal Teacher Education Program
Kitchen, Julian; Hodson, John
Canadian Journal of Education, v36 n2 p144-175 2013
Aboriginal education in Canada needs to shift away from the assimilative model to a model of culturally responsive pedagogy. Teacher education programs that serve Aboriginal teachers have an important role to play in developing an education system that both meets mainstream and Indigenous criteria for success. This paper examines the experiences of teacher educators working in a community-based Aboriginal Bachelor of Education program that was developed through a university-community partnership. Through interviews with eight teacher educators working in the program, five themes emerged as important in effective and culturally responsive practice by teacher educators working with Aboriginal teacher candidates.
