What is this MOOC about?
By way of a hundred or so filmed interviews, this MOOC (massive open online course) gives a voice to specialists and actors from the North. Thanks to a significant diversity of credible and committed stakeholders, it allows its participants to better understand the cultures of northern populations, the place of this space in the collective imagination, the different visions of development of the northern territory and its socio-political evolution.
To date, this MOOC has highlighted the testimonies, lessons learned and reflections of 47 stakeholders, including 22 indigenous stakeholders (representing 4 nations), 15 academic professors and 10 non-native representatives. From edition to edition, the creators of the MOOC improve its content by ensuring that the relevance of the training is preserved and anchored in the spirit of the times according to the latest news, debates and social issues.
The training is led by Thierry Rodon, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Université Laval and chairholder of the INQ Northern Sustainable Development Research Chair.
