Indigenizing the Engineering Curriculum: Second Steps

Florence Belanger-Jones | UBC Okanagan

Presentation | Tuesday, May 7 at 9:00 am – 10:15 am | LIB 317

UBC’s School of Engineering has committed to incorporating Indigenous content in undergraduate courses through customized curricular additions. Presentation attendees will gain insight into the collaborative process of choosing instructional strategies to deliver this content, challenges and setbacks faced, and feedback received. The focus will be on discussing delivery and grading methods chosen to best engage students and promote self-reflection. The aim of the presentation is to share the progress of this project in the hopes that it will encourage attendees to consider implementing Indigenous content in their own learning spaces.
