Say Magazine - - ART -

Con­tin­ued from page 8 The three Lau­rier stu­dents will be in Syra­cuse, while the three Syra­cuse stu­dents may go to the Lau­rier Brant­ford or Water­loo cam­pus de­pend­ing on their ma­jors. All six par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents will main­tain close con­tact as they work on their cur­ricu­lum de­vel­op­ment projects. At the end of the term, all stu­dents will present their work at a one-day sym­po­sium hosted by Lau­rier in Water­loo.

The en­vi­sioned end re­sult is six on­line cur­ricu­lum mod­ules that can be used as re­sources and in­cor­po­rated into cour­ses at any of the part­ner in­sti­tu­tions. Stu­dents will also be able to ac­cess the con­tent for re­search pur­poses.

Hod­son hopes the stu­dent-de­vel­oped con­tent will re­sult in non-Indige­nous stu­dents learn­ing more about Indige­nous is­sues and fu­ture Indige­nous stu­dents see­ing them­selves bet­ter re­flected and val­ued in class.
