This paper explores the usefulness of desktop videoconferencing in furthering the initiatives of an Indigenous teacher education program geographically remote from the university. The Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) prepares Indigenous teachers for First Nation or provincial K-12 classrooms in Ontario, Canada, and is offered by Queen's University Faculty of Education in partnership with Indigenous communities at three remote locations. This small pilot was conducted with Indigenous partners in the Manitoulin-North Shore (MNS) region to: 1) gain first-hand experience using desktop videoconferencing (DVC) with MNS ATEP community-based staff and management committee members; 2) evaluate the effectiveness of DVC in furthering ATEP administrative and learning initiatives; and 3) generate recommendations from participants concerning appropriate applications for DVC in Indigenous community-based contexts. A small literature review situates pilot findings within a broader context.
