History

BIOGRAPHY/HISTORY: Established in 1970, the Northwestern Filed Centre is the OISE/UT teaching, outreach, and research campus in Thunder Bay.
Field Centres make OISE / UT unique among North American universities. Located in Kitchener, Peterborough, and Thunder Bay, the Field Centres provide OISE/UT with a physical presence across Ontario. The Field Centre provide off-campus sites for courses in both graduate and Continuing Education Programs and serve as the OISE?UT contact point for students in the regions. Further, through Program-Based Field Development projects, the Field Centres link the curriculum and professional development needs of school boards with OISE/UT graduate studies, continuing education, research, and development activities.
The Mandate of the Northwestern Field Centre is to conduct field development projects with local practitioners in order to ensure that initiatives such as site based management, school councils, and new curriculum policy and programs are implemented in a manner consistent with the context and culture of the North. Further, through partnerships with the Northern School Resource Alliance and the local school districts, the Northwestern Field Centre also focuses on the development of leadership at the school and district levels. Finally, the Centre's faculty teach courses on class curriculum.
