Project Title: Unsettling Curriculum: A New Course in FNST 100
Research description: Our research aim is to decolonizing and Indigenize FNST 100 as a community of practice engaged in curriculum-revision work. Four educators will come together as a community of practice: two NLC faculty members and two Education Assistant program alumni who represent Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews in the work. The project will be process-oriented, as we strive to decolonize and Indigenize the curriculum and pedagogical practices in FNST 100.
