College of New Caledonia Hosts Indigenizing the Curriculum Workshop

The College of New Caledonia is hosting a three-day workshop, Indigenizing the Curriculum, to provide strategies and techniques to address the absence of Indigenous ways of knowing and history in the curriculum. For the most part, faculty members agree that being more inclusive in their teaching provides a greater depth of learning for students, however, most are unsure how this can be done. At times, the fear of making a mistake prevents faculty members from including this information. More than just having a reading or guest speaker, to indigenize the curriculum is to weave this material throughout the course.
