CMTN instructor incorporates “Whole Person” Indigenous perspective into course curriculum

Coast Mountain College instructor Dave McKeever recently incorporated a “Whole Person” Indigenous perspective into the curriculum of the Recruitment and Selection course. McKeever worked with Duane Jackson, Indigenous Relations Associate for the Prince Rupert Port Authority, to incorporate Jackson’s “Taughx Gadx” teachings into the course. Tauhx Gadx focuses on nine core virtues and promotes inclusion and connectedness. McKeever expressed hope that the addition of Tauhx Gadx would also help ensure students graduate with soft skills, which can be hard to measure. “[Tauhx Gadx] is about eliminating this traditional approach to hiring people and giving the students the tools and then knowledge to recruit and select employees using the best practice,” said McKeever.
