Announcing a new course open to Education students (DISE, ECP, KPE)!  EDPE 595: Seminar in Special Topics-- Introduction to Professional Engagement with Indigenous Peoples in Canada is a graduate level course that is also open to to advanced undergraduate students, with permission of the instructor. Taught by Professor Dennis Wendt on Tuesdays at 11:35 AM to 2:35 PM (EST), this course provides an introduction to key considerations pertaining to professional engagement with Indigenous Peoples in Canada, including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. The course’s aim is to help students to prepare to respectfully engage as educators, counsellors, health professionals, researchers, and other professionals working with this population, in a culturally safe manner that strives to be consistent with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s “calls to action.” The course aims to center Indigenous voices through prioritizing Indigenous-authored texts, memoirs, film, events, and news media (and potentially guest speakers), alongside other relevant academic literature.
