Course Re/Design Workshop Indigenizing by Design
(Date and time to be confirmed) Keep checking this website for upcoming Course Re-Design Workshops!
Indigenizing by Design is intended for new and experienced instructors and for those who have indigenizing by design in their future. The focus of the workshop is not on why or whether indigenizing is necessary, but HOW to indigenize any curriculum, from adult basic education, college/university preparation, and first to fourth year university courses.
The Course Redesign Workshop (CRW) provides a collegial environment for instructors to design a new course or to redesign a current course. Over the three days of the workshop, instructors will examine their course content, identify and explain the intended outcomes of their re-designed-or newly-designed-course; make informed choices regarding instructional methods to increase student engagement and learning; and design methods to assess learning that are congruent with the intended outcomes. Finally, they will learn about appropriate strategies to build a sense of community in their courses and ways to give and receive feedback.
This workshop is designed for the new and experienced instructor, and for those who have course design in their future. Come prepared to talk about teaching, to show and tell, to dismantle and "re-mantle" and to learn from your partners in the enterprise of teaching and learning.
Workshop Facilitator: Dr. Wendy Burton, Director, Teaching and Learning.
