Course Description

Do you want to build a better understanding of Indigenous worldviews, grow stronger relationship with Indigenous communities, and become a better ally to Indigenous peoples?  This micro-credential, based in the award-winning TELTIN TTE WILNEW program at Camosun College, explores Indigenous identities and worldviews, takes a deep look into the history of colonization in British Columbia and its ongoing effects on Indigenous peoples today, and guides participants as they explore how Indigenous ways learning, knowing, being, and doing come into play in the world of work. 

This micro-credential meets learners where they are in their learning journey; the only pre-requisite is a genuine desire to better understand and connect with Indigenous worldviews.  

Learner Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, learners will be better able to: 

  • Describe elements of an Indigenous worldview that are similar or different from the worldviews of other peoples 

  • Describe/discuss the impact of colonization on Indigenous peoples as it may influence their experiences with and expectations of your organization and outline how this informs your practice 

  • Recognize Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing that need to be reflected in any process that is designed to welcome and support Indigenous persons, and indicate how Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing welcome and support ALL of our community 

  • Understand the ways the historical, physical, and cultural landscape inform Indigenous peoples’ ongoing relationships with education and the workplace; identify ways to support and engage with Indigenous peoples in these settings 

  • Explain the purpose and processes of Indigenization initiatives and how they can be applied to your organization and your profession 

Assessments will be based on participation in talking circles, and on reflection journals shared on the course’s discussion board. In the interests of creating a safe and non-competitive environment, no grades will be given and learners will pass or fail according to their engagement with the material.
