4th edition | October 16 to 18, 2019 at the Palais des congrès in Montréal
The Convention on Perseverance and Academic Achievement for First Peoples is an open and privileged venue for dialogue between actors in the field of education aiming to promote perseverance and academic success by providing a forum for teachers, researchers, practitioners, administrators and students.
Through this theme, we are striving to go further in the discussions to deepen the understanding of First Peoples’ perseverance and academic success in order to better establish intervention objectives for Indigenous students; to go further in the sharing of practices by promoting the impacts in the multiple realities they encounter, so that each one, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, reflect on their role in this collective effort to improve the educational progress of First Peoples’ learners in communities or in urban areas.
The Convention’s main objectives are:
- To gather categories of education players involved with First Peoples youth;
- To share knowledge, teaching practices, supportive practices and collaborative practices;
- To highlight what is happening in schools;
- To generate ideas leading to new avenues of research and intervention;
- To foster meetings between teachers, researchers and practitioners to stimulate the development of partnerships.
