From traditional Inuit knowledge to the arrival of the Moravian Mission to the establishment of schools since confederation: the legacy of western-based formal education in Nunatsiavut is a mixture of success and disappointments. In an effort to ensure future success, the Nunatsiavut Government has partnered with the Faculty of Education at Memorial University to address the question of how best to support a truly Inuit Education system, which is critically important to the future of Nunatsiavut.
Join us for a discussion about the past, present, and future of education in Nunatsiavut with expert panelists:
Dr. Kirk Anderson was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Education, Memorial University in July 2011.
He started his teaching career in Makkovik, Labrador in 1981. As a teacher and principal, he served the school district and professional association as President of the Sandwich Bay Branch, Small Schools Special Interest Council President, and School Administrator Council Regional President.
Dr. Anderson has provided leadership development and pre-service teacher training of students, teachers, principals, and university and ministry leaders in the Caribbean, Slovenia, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, Lebanon, and Qatar. He is an advisor, consultant, and researcher for Success in Aboriginal Schools.
