Description

NOTE: SFU faculty members who attend this workshop must be teaching a credit course and are required to bring a course syllabus to the workshop to examine ways to indigenize course outcome goals and activities.

Bring your course syllabus to this workshop to examine ways you can indigenize course outcome goals and activities. In December 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released its calls to action for reconciliation related to the oppressive legacy of Indian Residential Schools. Required actions for educators include incorporation of indigenous ways of knowing and learning. Current curriculum design practices have primarily been developed from euro-centric traditions based in three domains of learning referred to as Bloom’s taxonomy. This workshop uses the Medicine Wheel, a teaching/learning framework that has widespread use in indigenous communities, for use in designing course outcome statements. Bloom’s taxonomy of the cognitive, psychomotor and affective domains is missing the fourth quadrant of the Medicine Wheel, spiritual.
