Indigenization

Indigenizing the Curriculum (IDC)

The Indigenizing the Curriculum (IDC) workshop is a fascinating opportunity that provides strategies and techniques to addresses the absence of Indigenous ways of knowing and history in the curriculum. 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 instructors from including Indigenous content in their courses. 

More than just having a reading or guest speaker, to indigenize the curriculum is to weave Indigenous material throughout a course. In this hands-on, three-day workshop, you have 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.

Over the summer I completed the Building Strengths online module. This program consists of five units that you can work through at your own pace. And you get a certificate of completion!

I found the module to be thoughtfully constructed and easy to follow. It includes useful interviews and follow-up quizzes to assess your comprehension of the material. Most important is that I learned more about what "inclusiveness" really means and how to prepare and deliver my courses to a diverse audience that might have challenges of which I am not, necessarily, aware.
