EDUC-390 - Making the Classroom a Healthy Place - 3.00 Credits

Course Details
Indigenous communities and educational institutions have inherited and continue to endure non-holistic learning that puts a narrow emphasis on cognitive outcomes and excludes emotional learning and skill development. This class will discuss the history of affective suppression as a form of colonialism and document its impact on the education of Indigenous peoples in North America. Students will explore Indigenous learning methodologies, affective neuroscience and philosophical arguments for developing the emotional dimension of education. This class will introduce a transformational view of learning within a cultural pedagogy that builds on a concept of affective development based on a holistic educational philosophy.
