Operating on a volunteer basis, departments reach out to the Associate Dean, Academic Programmes and Pedagogy, for support and to enter the Curriculab platform, after which mentorship would include initiatives such as:
- Meetings with Kahérakwas Donna Goodleaf, Director, Decolonizing and Indigenizing Curriculum and Pedagody at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to explore ways to decolonize curriculum [expertise]
- Creating connections with colleagues in different departments or faculties who are working on similar changes [building a cohort]
- Brainstorming sessions to open up future thinking about curriculum and pedagogy [gathering + peer support]
The ultimate goal of Curriculab is to have a long-term platform that allows faculty members and departments to explore radical change and to develop the skills, expertise, and confidence to make changes together.
