The University of the Fraser Valley is running its highly acclaimed, three day workshop, Indigenizing the Curriculum, January 18-20, 2017.
Indigenizing the Curriculum is a fascinating opportunity that provides strategies and techniques which addresses the absence of Indigenous ways of knowing and history in the curriculum. For the most part, faculty members agree that being more inclusive in their teaching provides a greater depth of learning for students, however, most are unsure how this can be done. At times, the fear of making a mistake prevents faculty members from including this information. More than just having a reading or guest speaker, to indigenize the curriculum is to weave this material throughout the course.
In this hands-on, three-day workshop, participants will be provided the opportunity to experience aspects of Indigenous traditions, scholarship and learning strategies that can be incorporated into a wide variety of courses and programs.
