Thoughts on decolonizing education. ¶

My name is Caylee. I’m Métis and a first-year nursing student at Medicine Hat College. I’d like to start a discussion here about how my own and other programs can help bring about decolonization. In my program, I would much prefer hands-on learning rather than the standard of rushing through lectures and memorizing texts. I think making this change would help decolonize the university learning structure. I know it’s hard for me and others to learn this way; not everyone has grown up learning from books. Many have learned from stories or by doing things themselves.
What do you want to see? What do you think is needed?
