FLO MicroCourse: Considerations to Indigenize Your Work

Facilitating learning online (FLO) MicroCourses are short, single-topic, hands-on and practical. They are designed to develop digital literacy in faculty and educators. 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. Join us for our FLO MicroCourse: Considerations to Indigenize Your Work. In this course you will explore how you might reframe Indigenous pedagogies in online (and face-to-face) environments, including encouraging participation and creating relationships. Please put aside an average of two hours per day to become acquainted with the materials and contribute to your overall advancement as well as that of the group. You will be invited to contribute with your reflections in two posts.

This course runs from July 18 – 24, 2022. We hope you can join us for two synchronous sessions, July 19 and July 21, 12:00 p.m. –1:30 p.m.
