Tea and Teachings: Conversations Around Indigenizing Curriculum

What is curriculum indigenization? What forms can curriculum indigenization take? How can instructors implement curriculum indigenization in their classes?

If you are a faculty or teaching staff member with an interest in these questions, the Centre for Educational Excellence and SFU Library’s Indigenous Curriculum Resource Centre invite you to a series entitled “Tea and Teachings: Conversations Around Indigenizing Curriculum.”

Using conversation and co-learning processes, this series will help you to develop foundational knowledge related to indigenizing and decolonizing curriculum. The five sessions will take you through

  • Personal reflection on topics such as positionality, responses to being called to engage with this work, positionality and world views

  • An understanding of the university’s colonial roots and impacts on Indigenous students

  • Definitions and implications of decolonizing and indigenizing curriculum in a variety of disciplines

These sessions are intended as an entry point into this work for faculty and teaching staff who want to engage with curriculum indigenization and decolonization but aren’t sure where to start.

Session dates

Sessions will be held on Zoom every other Wednesday, 2:30–4:00 p.m., on the following dates:

  • Feb 9
  • Mar 2, 16, 30
  • Apr 13, 27

There will be an accompanying Canvas site for resource sharing.
