Based on the Guiding Principles for Curriculum Development Projects created by Dr. Gabrielle Lindstrom, this workshop provides opportunities to think through how different understandings of curriculum can open dialogues to meaningfully engage with Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing. We encourage you to bring along your program proposal or course outline as we discuss key concepts and examples of how you might begin applying the Guiding Principles.
- Participants will identify and apply multiple conceptions/understandings of "curriculum" in the context of program development and/or course planning
- Participants will make connections between conceptions of curriculum and the Indigenous Guiding Principles for Curriculum Development
- Participants will reflect upon and critically analyze personal experiences/examples of curriculum/course development using the two lenses of conceptions of curriculum and Indigenous Guiding Principles for Curriculum Development
