William Morin - Returning Education to a Natural Environment
Gabrielle Pellerin speaks to Will Morin about The Indigenous Studies department at the University of Sudbury, which has developed an Indigenous Studies program and a selection of its courses on-campus and through online/distance education for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. The department and its courses offer students the opportunity to seek "identity revitalization" and "individual path validation" through community and cultural engagement while pursuing their academic endeavors.
Recognizing the shortfalls of Western education. Indigenous pedagogy is an engagement with and in nature.
Please note: The quality of the audio and video in each interview on NCCIE.CA may vary. NCCIE has been a capacity- and skills-building project for students and youth. They have been "learning-through-doing," learning how to arrange and conduct interviews while, at the same time, gaining experience with the technology.
