At OISE, many graduate courses create spacesfor integrating Aboriginal and Indigenous knowledges, and OISE’s teacher educationprogram has developed Aboriginal content in all core areas of learning so that OISE teachercandidates can be better prepared to teach Aboriginal learners and to include Aboriginal worldviews in their future classrooms.About the IENThe IEN provides an Indigenous presence at OISE and seeks to establish a forum for ongoingand dynamic discussion, action and change. To achieve our vision the IEN supports students andtheir study interests in Indigenous education; advances education research on Indigenous issues;actively encourages the development of Indigenous curricula; and, collaborates with campus andcommunity groups to strengthen our initiatives.
