First Nations Pedagogy: March 3-31, 2008

Facilitator: June KaminskiJune Kaminski
Description:
Many campuses and support units have special programs in place to ensure success of Aboriginal learners, recognizing that a supportive environment will contribute to a positive educational experience. However, online delivery of courses specifically targeting Aboriginal learners is relatively new and is on the increase. The question of what this means in terms of course design, instructional strategies, and building supportive learning communities, remains a challenge to many instructors.

This seminar discussion marks the launch of the First Nations Pedagogy for Online Learning Project funded by BCcampus and led by Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in partnership with Kwantlen University College. The project proposes to:
  1. research best practices in developing and implementing online learning opportunities for aboriginal learners,
  2. develop a resource website that will support these instructors and curriculum designers, and
  3. support dialogue and sharing of ideas across institutions and community stakeholders.
