Humber’s Truth and Reconciliation cultural awareness training has now launched. The training, entitled 4 Seasons of Reconciliation, takes place via Blackboard and will promote a renewed relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canadians through transformative learning about truth and reconciliation.

Four Seasons of Reconciliation is a 3-hour, 10-module online course that is designed directly in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action. It responds specifically to Call to Action #62. This focuses on the need for institutions like Humber to implement curriculum and resources to help people learn about the historical and current context of Indigenous peoples.

The course is multi-media and user-friendly. Each short module can be completed at the learner’s pace and provides a mix of learning tools such as PowerPoint, videos, films and quizzes. Learners will get to participate in two facilitated breakout sessions to support inquiry and reflection. A certificate of completion and a bonus video library for on-going learning is provided at the end of the course.

This training, endorsed by the Executive Team, supports Humber’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan under the Accessible Education pillar by expanding and enhancing Indigenous programming and research.
