Providence University College and Theological Seminary has announced that it will be partnering with key Indigenous leaders in Manitoba and the Anglican Diocese of the Arctic to develop new, targeted educational programming. Providence will collaborate with both partners to develop certificate programs that focus on pastoral leadership as well as Indigenous identity, leadership, and reconciliation. “We have learned that there is a cultural affinity between our learner-centred pedagogies of competency-based educational models and Innuit and First Nation worldviews,” said Providence’s Director of the Centre for On-Demand Education Karen Anderson. Providence will develop Indigenized curriculum for First Nations learners, with the goal of having a draft of both certificates completed for review by the end of the summer.
