This workshop is designed for anyone in the UBC teaching and learning community who is interested in integrating Indigenous content into a course they are developing. The workshop will include focused discussions on learning materials, resources, and course design for Indigenous engagement. You will have the opportunity to work on integrating Indigenous content in your own course in a supportive, peer-to-peer learning environment, while we cover topics such as:

  • Engaging with place and territory acknowledgements in your course
  • Selecting and framing relevant content
  • Aligning objectives with content and assessment
  • Anti-oppressive teaching and course design strategies

This workshop is suitable for participants who have attended the Classroom Climate series, who have experience designing their own courses, and would like to engage more deeply with implementation of Indigenous content in their courses. Pre-registration is required for this full day workshop.

Please bring any working drafts or finalized version of your course syllabus, and any resources and materials that may serve you throughout the course design process.

Registration deadline: Monday, November 14th by 4:30pm.
