The educational landscape in BC is undergoing exciting developments,
and this course responds to new curriculum developments.
In this course, educators will build their knowledge and deepen their understanding of Aboriginal/Indigenous people¹s worldviews, approaches to learning, and their histories and contemporary realities. Through the frameworks of reconciliation, decolonization, and self-determination, we will explore how Indigenous histories, perspectives, content, worldviews and pedagogies can be respectfully and meaningfully integrated in the curriculum, teaching, and programming of classrooms, schools, and community contexts.
This course responds to new curriculum development in British Columbia and Canada¹s Truth and Reconciliation Commission¹s Calls to Action (2015), whereby educators are prepared to advance Aboriginal history and worldviews in the curriculum of schools.
Delivered through blended learning, the class will meet 8 weeks face-to-face at UBC Vancouver and include four 3-hour online modules.
Registration is available for credit (3 credits, EDUC 440) or for non-credit participation to meet the needs of working professionals. We anticipate this course will fill quickly, early registration is recommended.
