FLO MicroCourse – Acknowledging Traditional Indigenous Lands @ Asynchronous
Dec 7 – Dec 13 all-day

FLO MicroCourse logo

Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourses are short, single-topic, hands-on, practical, and free. In one week you will have an opportunity to dip into the FLO experience and leave with something practical and useful for your own teaching practice.

In this course, we explore the purpose, intent, and ways of acknowledging traditional Indigenous lands. A meaningful acknowledgment involves locating the self in who we are as human beings, i.e. our ethics, values, and beliefs about how we are connected with one another, and the places where we live and work.

This course includes mostly asynchronous activities which means you can spread your 6 to 13 hours of participation over the whole week. Synchronous sessions will be recorded. Spreading out participation over each day is ideal.
