BCcampus to begin province-wide indigenization process for higher ed

May 4, 2016

BCcampus has announced that beginning this spring, it will facilitate a program to indigenize curriculum and build Indigenous cultural awareness in postsecondary institutions across British Columbia. The organization will undertake this work on behalf of BC’s Ministry of Advanced Education through the new Indigenization of Curriculum and Cultural Awareness training project (ICCAT). The project’s stated goals will include the development of open educational resources that will be accessible to faculty and staff at all postsecondary institutions so that they can be better prepared to meet the needs of Indigenous students and communities. The resources will enable educators to incorporate Indigenous content, teaching methods, ceremony, and other indigenization efforts into teaching practices.
