Indigenous Scholarship

Curriculum Development

Beginning in 2016, we will create new undergraduate courses related to: Reconciliation; Indigenous health and well-being; and community engagement.

To supplement already existing graduate courses at Western, we will develop graduate courses related to: Sport and health at residential schools; Reconciliation in the global context; Applied methodologies

Several of the TRC’s recommendations for reconciliation in the post-secondary environments are related specifically to medical and legal curriculum. As such, we are in the process of developing innovative partnerships with other national and international partner universities to co-learn and develop best practices for enhancing the cultural competence of our medical and legal curriculum.
