The Indigenous Curriculum Specialist is the primary academic resource within UCN to assist faculty to incorporate Indigenous epistemologies into their professional practice in a variety of ways, including
- supporting the inclusion of Indigenous content and context, as well as teaching and learning methods and perspectives;
- mentoring teaching, learning, and research in Indigenous andragogy and related areas, and
- supporting faculty as they integrate Indigenous worldviews with Western perspectives.
In addition, the Indigenous Curriculum Specialist will recommend academic structures and processes by which students can experience their post-secondary education in alignment with their own lives, worldviews, and goals.
