Prepared by the Northwest Territories (NWT) Literacy Council, this short video is part of a series celebrating International Adult Learners’ Week (IALW) 2012.
In this video, a community college instructor describes how she was inspired to become an educator in order to preserve the knowledge of Gwich’in, considered one of the most endangered Aboriginal languages.
Two other instructors explain that while they had always intended to become teachers, they hadn’t originally planned to become adult educators. However, they discovered that teaching adults was their special niche.
