Aboriginal Inquiry: Lifting All Learners

An Impact Assessment of the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN)

6.7 Conclusion

AESN inquiries have served as a powerful tool for both adult and student learning in British Columbia. Developing an inquiry, participating in constant evaluation, questioning, reading relevant research and participating in examining the parallel between adult learning and student learning has enabled educators to own their learning and model what learning looks like for their students. Participating in the AESN allows educators to borrow each other’s strategies, but more importantly to more deeply examine their goals and visions for Aboriginal student success. The AESN has created a learning community for both adult and student learners in BC that honours the diversity, uniqueness and complexity of the Aboriginal peoples of our province.
