Welcome to Roles and Responsibilities of the Educational Assistant!
This course is made possible by a partnership between University College of the North and the Manitoba Flexible Learning HUB. The HUB is a resource for the development of fully online courses, blended learning modules, and learning resources.
This course is designed to introduce you to the role of educational assistant in an educational environment. It is the first course in the Educational Assistant program at UCN.
