Redefining How Success is Measured in First Nations, Inuit and Métis Learning (2007)

Report on Learning in Canada

The authors note that First Nations, Inuit and Métis people have long advocated for learning that reflects their traditions and values but, at the same time, want a Western education that can equip them to participate fully in Canadian society. This document reports on the progress of a cooperative initiative aimed at redefining learning success in this context.

The authors outline the key characteristics of holistic lifelong learning for First Nations, Inuit and Métis as identified in the literature; identify data gaps and challenges that limit understanding of Aboriginal learning; present draft holistic lifelong learning models for First Nations, Inuit and Métis; and propose how each model can be used to develop a national, holistic framework for measuring lifelong learning.

They conclude by urging governments and researchers to collaborate with First Nations, Inuit and Métis to ensure that holistic lifelong learning for Aboriginal people is understood and appropriately measured and reported.
