Abstract

This paper summarizes the results of an evaluation of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Distance Apprenticeship Training and Education (NAIT DATE) program. NAIT DATE uses videoconference technology to reverse the traditional model of having apprentices temporarily move to the location of their technical institution or college for theory courses by having the student complete their apprenticeship theory training in their home community. In NAIT DATE, students are located singly or in small groups throughout the province, while the instructor is located at the NAIT main campus. The evaluation used multiple methods to look at the results of the first full year of this program, including student achievement, attrition, and student, faculty and employer attitudes. A number of recommendations are provided.
