About the Session

AUDIENCE: ALL MEMBERS OF THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY ARE ENCOURAGED TO ENROLL. THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, TEACHERS, EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANTS, BUS DRIVERS, SUPPORT STAFF, AND PARENTS.

The Education for Reconciliation eCourse provides a learning pathway for all members of a school community to deepen their awareness and understanding of 'Foundational Knowledge' as it pertains to Alberta's Indigenous Peoples. This eLearning opportunity is intended to help participants create shared understandings of the diverse First Nations, Métis, and Inuit culture and traditions, values and attitudes, and of historical and contemporary realities of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people in Alberta.

The Education for Reconciliation eCourse is designed for all members of a school community, and is accessible by participants 24/7 to accommodate the busy schedules of those wishing to participate in this dynamic learning opportunity.

Join our online facilitator, Donna Ross, for this self-paced eLearning opportunity where participants will have the ability to:

  • deepen their awareness of the rich culture and history of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people in Alberta.
  • broaden their understanding of the legacy of residential schools, treaty education, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action for education.
  • participate in on-line discussions and activities to enrich their learning experience.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
