EDMONTON – EDUCATION – The University of Alberta are offering a free online course for all interested. Indigenous Canada is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada.
From an Indigenous perspective, this course explores key issues facing Indigenous peoples today from a historical and critical perspective highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations.
There is increased interest across Canada in learning about the history of our country and how our Indigenous people were treated. Many of the issues that face many Indigenous people have their roots in the Residential Schools, the “Sixties Scoop”, the abuse that many young people faced from people who were in what should have been positions of trust and caring for the people.
This free course can also be part of a broader course as students can pay a small fee and receive academic credit for the course.
