Summer Institute

The Department of Indigenous Education is proud to offer a Summer Institute starting in the month of June each year. This institute is a meaningfully integrated cluster of four courses offered during the month of June, with a focus on Indigenous knowledge, epistemology, pedagogy and education.

This 6-unit institute is designed to give teacher candidates an opportunity to learn from and about Indigenous knowledge and to make valuable connections to the local Indigenous communities.

The 4 courses (1.5 units each) included in the institute are:

  • IED 371: The History of Indigenous Education in Canada
  • IED 374: Indigenous Pedagogies
  • IED 399: Special Topics in Indigenous Education
  • IED 473: CENENITEL TW TOLNEW: Helping each other to learn
