Saskatchewan Polytechnic is hoping to create a deeper understanding of Indigenous nations through a free online course.
The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will focus on culture and history, particularly as it relates to Saskatchewan and examines the theme of reconciliation in Canada. Students will learn about the colonization of Indigenous peoples, reconciliation, Indigenous histories, perspectives, worldviews and approaches to learning.
“We developed the Introduction to Indigenous Studies MOOC with our students in mind,” Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO, said in a press release. “Our instructors requested more information to develop their knowledge and understanding of Indigenous people’s worldviews and cultures to create inclusive learning spaces. This is one of the ways we are helping our instructions learn more about Saskatchewan’s Indigenous history.”
