The Education Programs division of Nunavut Arctic College regularly “promotes the positives” as it pertains to our Students and Faculty. Today, I would like to recognize Kaviq Kaluraq, Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP) Instructor. Last Thursday, 6/2/14, she was reappointed for a second time to the Nunavut Impact Review Board. It will be for a three year term.
Forensic science is the scientific method of gathering and examining information about the past. This is especially important in law enforcement where forensics is done in relation to criminal or civil law, but forensics are also carried out in other fields, such as astronomy, archaeology, biology and geology to investigate ancient times.
Nunavut Arctic College has been moving towards Outcomes-Based curriculum reform in our program offerings. Consequently, in an effort to profile this initiative, we hosted an Outcomes Based Education conference in Iqaluit from January 15-17, 2014.
On December 13, 2013, the Hon. Paul Quassa, Minister of Education and Minister Responsible for Nunavut Arctic College paid a visit to Nunatta Campus in Iqaluit. While there he visited the offices of Education Programs and briefly discussed our current Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP) and Early Childhood Education (ECE) offerings. We thank Minister Quassa for the visit and look forward to working closely with him as we continue to develop programs that will serve Nunavummiut.
No fancy easel? No problem! Early Childhood Education students in Coral Harbour make their own out of a box, string, clothes pins and a chair!
Nunavut Arctic College is in the process of developing a broadened approach to online courses. The intent is to utilize a platform that will serve as a repository / digital archive for all courses in an easily accessible format.
