This course promotes Biskaabiiyang, the Anishinaabemowin term for the individual and collective process of looking back to consider the far-reaching (past-present-future) impacts of colonialism. By working through 5 online modules, “Belonging”, “Mastery”, “Independence”, “Generosity” and “Nindinawemaganidog– All My Relations” and participating in each module in-person circle discussion, course participants will be encouraged to consider their roles and responsibilities in advancing reconciliation and decolonization efforts within the institution. Participants will support one another’s learning to critically engage the colonial underpinnings of their discipline and collaboratively reflect on how to decolonize the School of Management systems, course curriculums, and teaching praxis. However, three spaces in the course are available for Faculty Certificate in Teaching & Learning program participants, from disciplines outside of the School of Management. To receive credit for this course towards the Faculty Certificate in Teaching & Learning, a written reflection for each module and a final project, determined in consultation with the course instructor, must be submitted.
