Program Description

This certificate is a dynamic, flexible, and developmental approach designed to fill a gap in cross-cultural teacher training. The core of this program is based on experiencing and building a greater awareness and understanding of Aboriginal history and culture that validates Aboriginal/Indigenous knowledge through working with Elders, going on field trips, listening to guest speakers, participating in simulations, and attending community events.

Students will critically analyze and reflect on cultural bias, including one’s own values and assumptions. The program will prepare sensitive educators to teach Aboriginal children, teach in inner city schools and teach all children about Aboriginal culture and history.
