Courses in this program are offered in a blended format. Consisting of our summer residency, an on campus experience held in Summer with online work completed before and/or after your time in Calgary. Fall and Winter courses are typically held fully online through Desire2Learn and Zoom. For additional information regarding online delivery, refer to the eLearn website.
In completing this topic, you will:
- explore concepts, theories, research, and case studies in the areas of decolonization and reconciliation through reading, thinking, writing, and critical reflections based on course readings, in-class discussions, and other course activities;
- encounter, explore, and engage in Indigenous scholarship that furthers an understanding, and the decolonizing, of our collective history and national narrative;
- build understandings of the scope and purpose of Indigenous education work in relation to the Truth and Reconciliation Findings and Calls to Action, and in relation to applicable education policies;
- partner with Indigenous people who are active within the realm of adult education in a broad range of organizations and learning movements targeted toward societal reconciliation and social justice;
- apply course readings, discussions, and assignments to your scholarly work, or in your work with volunteers and activists; and
- extend the understanding of adult education and learning beyond the classroom to various informal teaching and learning settings and contexts that create a relational space for scholars to build their awareness, engage in learning, and create paths for success.
This Master of Education Interdisciplinary program (two concurrent summer courses followed by two online courses over the fall and winter) is designed for those who wish to explore, and enact, their own responses to a national call for reconciliation with Canada's First Peoples.
