Facing Human Wrongs: Course Registration
You can register for FHW as an individual (self-study) or as part of a scheduled group with a trained facilitator. However, before you decide to register, we ask you to complete the activities of Unlearning Bundle (Unit) 1: What’s education for?, specially the questionnaire “Is this course for me?”. Once that is done, you can choose one of the options below:
Register for individual self-study here: all the units are openly available online, you can start straight away and opt to complete the individual reflection journals (link provided in each unit). You will also receive a link to a course evaluation form by email once you have completed the reflection journal for unit 6.
Register for a scheduled group here: you will receive a confirmation within 72 hours and a code to a Flipgrid group, where you will be able to post your video reflections and read the reflections of other participant in your group.
We have three groups starting mid-June to end of July (6 weeks): two general groups and one group focused on the experiences of people who identify as queer (queer caucus). The course is offered over 6 weeks and requires a commitment of at least 6 hours a week of asynchronous learning + a 90 minute zoom session for discussions. Tutorials are scheduled as follows:
- General group 1: zoom tutorials on Saturdays from 8:30 to 10:00 am PDT (Vancouver time). Tutorial dates: June 25; July 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
- General group 2: zoom tutorials on Wednesdays from 12:00 to 1:30 pm PDT (Vancouver time). Tutorial dates: June 22, 29; July 6, 13, 20, 27.
- Queer caucus: zoom tutorials on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 10:00 am PDT (Vancouver time). Tutorial dates: June 21, 28; July 5, 12, 19, 26.
We run facilitated courses as part of a carbon debt reparations initiative that redistributes available funds to our Indigenous collaborators in Brazil. We ask for a reciprocity commitment of around $500 to be made to one of two Indigenous-led initiatives: The University of the Forest led by the Federation of the Huni Kui People in the Amazon, and the “Sabores and Saberes” food sovereignty initiative led by the Tremembe Indigenous people in the northeast of Brazil. If you wold like to take the course, but you do not have the means to make a reciprocity commitment, please choose “I need a scholarship” in the registration form (requests for scholarship will be considered case by case). You will be sent the link where you can make a reciprocity contribution once your registration is confirmed.
