EDUC 904 GO31: focuses on the students’ capstone project with an emphasis on applied research, analysis, evaluation and representation of the various projects approved by the Skwxwú7mesh Nation Council and developed collaboratively through the MEd Curriculum & Instruction, Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw program. Scheduled at the end of the two-year MEd program, this course aims both to integrate previous learning with students’ lived understanding of their research and practice and ongoing professional and personal growth. As a central part of the course, each student will either jointly contribute to a collective capstone paper or individually create a final capstone paper. Each paper (either collaborative or individual) will be accompanied by a presentation to compliment and disseminate this work. Early classes will focus on gathering or documenting understandings related to the projects, followed by later classes focusing on meaning making/interpretive writing and reporting. Final classes will emphasize dissemination through presentations where invited guests from the community will witness this work.

EDUC 904 is evaluated upon SFU’s standard graduate grade system:


Assignments will follow APA 7 guidelines for in-text citations, references, and grammar. See CANVAS -page “Other Resources” for relevant links for APA.



Depending on the type of data you are collecting you may be interested in some research analysis tools. Links to these free resources are on the CANVAS site for Education 830 under Research Resource page.


All required readings will be made available through CANVAS via open-access sources available through the SFU library.

We will revisit course texts, articles you’ve already engaged in your other courses (e.g., Kovach (2009), Wilson (2009), and Smith (2012)

Graduate Studies Notes:

Important dates and deadlines for graduate students are found here: The deadline to drop a course with a 100% refund is the end of week 2. The deadline to drop with no notation on your transcript is the end of week 3.

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.


Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses.  Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning ( or 778-782-3112).
