RRC Polytech instructors, staff Indigenize ACME programs

January 12, 2022
Red River College Polytechnic’s Applied Commerce and Management Education (ACME) programs has announced that it will be Indigenizing its courses. ACME instructors and staff were inspired by a presentation about incorporating Indigenous content into courses, and came together to make changes. The group was guided by Carla Kematch, RRC Polytech’s Director of Truth and Reconciliation and the Elders-in-Residence who provided them with support as the group created an Indigenized curriculum. “The most thrilling thing for a teacher is when your students are engaged,” said ACME instructor Taras Wasyliw. “Now that we’re seeing that in our department, interest is growing, and I can see the number of Indigenized courses rising over time.” RRC Polytech (MB)
