Curious about how to Indigenize your engineering/computer science curriculum?

IMPORTANT NOTE

This workshop is reserved for faculty members of the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science.

***

The Gina Cody School is committed to advancing principles of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. In line with Concordia's launch of Indigenous Directions Action Plan differentiating Concordia from other higher education institutions, the Gina Cody School would like to offer this workshop to advance the recognition and integration of indigenous knowledge in curriculum and pedagogy.

As stated by Graham Carr, Interim President and Vice-Chancellor “The Action Plan is not a panacea to the multiple complex challenges to reconciliation, Indigenization and decolonization that we and our key stakeholders have observed and experienced. Rather, we have set out a number of actions that we believe have the potential to prepare the ground for further, ongoing and increasingly intensified efforts to recalibrate and transform the University’s internal and external relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities.”

How do we do this in Engineering and Computer Science? This workshop will aim at answering this question by:

  • deepening your knowledge and understanding about what decolonizing the curriculum means
  • providing concrete strategies on ways to decolonize your curriculum and pedagogical practices in meaningful and respectful ways
  • hearing from a professor in Engineering who will discuss his process and application of decolonizing his course syllabus and what joys and challenges he encountered while teaching this redesigned course.

Facilitators

  • Donna Kahérakwas Goodleaf, Interim Senior Director, Indigenous Directions / Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic;
  • Kasim Ali Tirmizey, Part-time Faculty in the Centre for Engineering in Society at the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science.
