This technology-supported, collaborative delivery model will increase access to quality learning for rural adult learners throughout NorQuest's stewardship region better preparing them for post-secondary education or employment opportunities in their communities. Four content streams targeted to rural learning needs will be offered, including pre-high school mathematics, language/essential skills, Aboriginal literacy and intercultural education. The content streams will pilot a more coordinated approach to recruiting, supporting and teaching adult learners, as well as optimizing the quality of instruction through customized regional support services and a curriculum managment system.
