(FULL LATE APRIL) Pre-Registration Required: 20 Participants Maximum

A pressing question in teaching and learning and higher education today surrounds Indigenizing curriculum and Indigenizing the academy, but what does it mean for educators in practice, and what are some of the critical considerations around these issues?

This is not a “how-to” session, but an exploratory workshop that focuses on a few key factors to consider when integrating Indigenous content and perspectives into post-secondary courses:
  • how do we bridge the knowledge gaps that students and instructors bring to learning about Indigenous issues?
  • what is the significance of examining the social location of instructors and students within larger contexts of classroom and campus climate in planning our courses with Indigenous content?
  • what is the value of acknowledging the specific geographies and histories of the places where our teaching and learning is grounded, especially when we introduce Indigenous content across diverse disciplines?

In this session, we will initiate discussion, and share questions, experiences, ideas, and resources to enhance course design (and hence the student experience) with Aboriginal perspectives and content in mind. This is a collaborative session where facilitators will share resources, and participants will be invited to envision what course design might look like when we meaningfully integrate Indigenous content.
