The University of the Fraser Valley is hosting a three-day workshop, Indigenizing the Curriculum, to provide strategies and techniques to address 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 culture, traditions, scholarship and learning strategies that can be incorporated into a wide variety of courses and programs.
Date: June 8, 9, and 10, 2015 at UFV Abbotsford
Cost: $289 for visitors to UFV. Space is limited.
