For Educators: Indigenous Educational Offering

Indigenous Educational Offering + Discussion Group

Are you interested in exploring ways to decolonize your teaching practices or Indigenize your curriculum? Maybe you are curious about teaching practices that can better support Indigenous learners? Or perhaps you simply want to learn more about Canada’s history with its Indigenous Peoples.

This fall, CITL is hosting guided conversations with Memorial University participants of UBC’s Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education. This six-week course is offered by UBC’s Office of Indigenous Education, and participants will “engage with Indigenous knowledge keepers, educational leaders, and resources to enhance your understanding and knowledge of practices that advance reconciliation in the places where you live, learn, and work.”

Interested educators at Memorial can enroll and complete the course at their own pace. In addition, CITL will supplement and enhance the offering by hosting three group discussions throughout the course to help facilitate dialogue, and move the conversation about reconciliation and Indigenization forward here at Memorial.

Memorial Discussion Group (virtual attendance options will be made available):

  • Oct. 29, 1-2:30 p.m., ED1001
  • Nov. 19, 1-2:30 p.m., ED1001
  • Dec. 3, 1-2:30 p.m., ED1001

How to participate:

  1. Register for UBC’s MOOC.
  2. Register to attend the local discussion group for the MOOC by emailing Jason Geary, CITL.
