A fun-filled week with a focus on learning

Most of the week will be taken up with a UNBC course: ARTS 101: Learning Strategies. This course will help students identify their strengths as learners, master new learning strategies, identify career goals that suit their skill sets, and generally make a successful transition to university, all from an Aboriginal perspective! This course will include a mixture of in-class work, learning from Elders and other guest speakers, and experiential learning (field trips).
