Learning Opportunities

Aboriginal Awareness Course

This online course provides participants with the opportunity to increase awareness of Aboriginal cultures and explore how to better support of students, staff, and colleagues. Using videos and personal narratives, Inuit, Metis and Cree history, contemporary issues, and ways of learning and knowing will be explored. Participants will reflect on Aboriginal cultures, and will examine the effects of colonization and racism through course content and interaction with Cree Elder Walter Bonaise. The course delivery is supported by Inuit Elder Peggy Richardson and Cree Cultural Advisor Verna Orr. There will be opportunities provided for personal reflection and application of course content as participants focus on understanding as a path to greater self-awareness and Aboriginal student, staff, and colleague support.
This online course is asynchronous and you can enter at any time during the week to access the content and participate in the activities. There are no papers to complete and no examinations to write, although each week there is at least one interactive activity to complete and the Elders will hold an optional office hour to explore content and questions.
