Abstract

Humboldt State University's Indian Teacher & Educational Personnel Program offers a unique curriculum in American Indian Education of special interest to pre-service and in-service teachers. However, these courses face obstacles to enrollment. To overcome these access obstacles, the History of Indian Education course was developed for online, asynchronous delivery. After confirming that online instruction can be culturally appropriate for Native American populations, instructional design techniques were incorporated to deliver student-centered, high-quality instruction. This paper outlines the parallels between effective student-centered online instruction and traditional Native American instructional style along with the corresponding instructional design decisions. The instructor collaborated with a technology consultant to complete the project. Feedback has been so overwhelmingly positive that additional curricula for online delivery are now under development.
