Pedagogy and course content
Indigenous pedagogy is at the discretion of our faculty members and varies within courses and programs. Faculty may invite First Nations community members into the classroom or take field trips to First Nations communities. Many support and respect First Nations cultural expectations, discuss Indigenous issues and current events, participate in cultural awareness seminars, and endeavour to be sensitive and inclusive in the design and delivery of their courses.
Indigenous focused courses
Here you will find examples of courses that have an Indigenous focus. Please note that not all courses are offered at all times. Course offerings vary from year to year and campus to campus. Some courses may be offered by Video Conference. This list is subject to change.
