Reconciliation through Indigenous Education
Engage with Indigenous-knowledge keepers, educational leaders, and resources to enhance your understanding of practices that advance reconciliation.
This course will help you envision how Indigenous histories, perspectives, world views, and approaches to learning can be made part of the work we do in classrooms, organizations, communities, and our everyday experiences in ways that are thoughtful and respectful. In this course, reconciliation emphasizes changing institutional structures, practices, and policies, as well as personal and professional ideologies to create environments that are committed to strengthening our relationships with Indigenous peoples.

Teach Mental Health: Mental Health Literacy for the Classroom
Mental illness most often begins in adolescence, yet the people who work with teenagers on a daily basis are often unprepared to recognize and understand mental illness.
Teacher education programs rarely address mental health literacy, resulting in teacher candidates who are at a disadvantage when they enter the workforce. Teachmentalhealth.org was developed to address this need.
This free, online, modular-based resource was developed for teachers. It is available to be used as a cohesive whole or subdivided and incorporated into existing courses. It can be presented face-to-face or entirely online, and be instructor-led or student-driven. Teachers and other educators who are currently in schools are also invited to take the course.
