The Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia will once again offer the free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education starting January 30th, 2018. 
Please share with colleagues, educators, staff, community members, students or others, the information on the updated and revised MOOC offering.
This is a free 6 week course supporting professional and personal learning for advancing Indigenous perspectives and reconciliation in community, education, and work contexts.
