Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education's Full Profile

Overview

Description

About this Course Governments, school boards and Indigenous communities have identified Indigenous education as a key priority, identifying specific educational goals to ensure the educational success of Indigenous learners. There is growing educational policy at local, provincial, territorial, and national levels that tell us there needs to be change in the way we design, deliver and assess learning opportunities for Indigenous learners. Educators need to be able to respond to education reform that prioritizes improved educational outcomes for Indigenous children and youth. Reconciliation is a focal point for building and sustaining respectful relationships among Indigenousand non-Indigenous peoples in countries such as Canada and Australia, with relevance to the US and New Zealand. Through the lens of reconciliation participants of this course will engage with educational leaders and resources that provide direction for how education programs and teaching practices can be modified in order to meaningfully integrate Indigenous knowledge worldviews and pedagogies in classrooms, schools and communities. Teachers, administrators, staff, community educators, researchers and young people will come to see that changing our education practices, requires changing our ideas with benefits for all learners.
