EDUCATIONAL

PROGRAMS

Providing access to high-quality educational programs is a cornerstone of NII’s mandate. NII believes students in rural communities like those in Grey, Bruce and Huron counties should have unsurpassed opportunities for digital learning and technology adoption, notably in science, engineering and math disciplines. 

 

Spurred by the urgency of responding to climate change, NII has also made a core commitment of enhancing social awareness on energy and environmental issues for all age groups, including the role of nuclear power in a decarbonized future. 

 

NII PRINCIPLES

NII develops its programming in cooperation with respected educational providers and partners in academia, philanthropic foundations and the private sector. Its portfolio of initiatives is built upon the following principles:

 

  • A primary focus on delivering programs to students in or in close proximity to the Grey, Bruce and Huron regions. 

  • NII’s educational programs should be as inclusive and accessible as possible. Wherever possible, they should be free to students.

  • NII courses, workshops, lectures and programs should be innovative in their content, engaging in presentation, and adhere to the highest pedagogical standards.

  • NII’s educational programming will offer a mix of hands-on, experiential learning, and distance learning that connects students -wherever they are - to the best teaching and knowledge available.

OUR CURRENT PROGRAMS

NII will consider partnerships with the following entities to deliver programming:  accredited academic institutions; private sector companies with expertise in education; philanthropic foundations; indigenous communities; and individuals with particular experience in educational programming.
