Promoting Systemic Change
Now that you have worked through the preceding sessions, you are probably beginning to get a sense of what indigenization means to you. Or maybe the perspective you had when you started this guide has been affirmed. We hope you have learned along the way and are more confident about how you will continue your work to introduce Indigenous perspectives into your curriculum, not just to serve Indigenous students, but to serve us all.
As you engage in the work of Indigenizing curriculum, you will find there are limits to what can be done through curriculum alone. Holistic transformation of the university will involve systemic change, including policies, practices, and organizational culture. In this session, we explore how you can contribute to systemic change as a curriculum developer.

POSTPONED - Meaningful Integration of Indigenous Epistemologies and Pedagogies
This workshop will be rescheduled at a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Indigenization of curriculum requires much more than adding Indigenous content. In an education system that has, since its inception and into the present day, valued Western ways of thinking almost exclusively, Indigenization of curriculum requires us to bring Indigenous ways of thinking, being, and learning into course design. This session will provide a discussion of Indigenous epistemologies and pedagogies and how these can be interwoven in curriculum design and development.
