This presentation will report the research findings of the Alberta-North/Athabasca University research project, entitled “Attracting, Preparing, and Retaining Aboriginal and Low-Literacy Learners in Northern Communities”. The findings were gathered from several sources, including community consultations, learner survey results, and a review of the literature, all of which begin to suggest persistent themes, strategies, and necessities for attracting, preparing and retaining students in northern communities. Session participants will be invited to reflect on the research findings, and consider implications for practice.
