- Learning Outcomes
- Students who successfully complete the paper will be able to
- Critically analyse, evaluate and debate many of the diverse theoretical and epistemological paradigms relevant to Indigenous peoples
- Significantly engage with at least one of the theoretical/methodological paradigms presented in class to the degree of understanding that will allow the student to employ that theoretical/methodological paradigm as the underpinnings for their INGS 590 Research Report. That is, the student should be able to form a research question, theoretical paradigm and epistemological method based on one of the theoretical/methodological paradigms learnt in INGS 501
