DEVELOPING INDIGENOUS CURRICULUM
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.
