How can we as administrators, students, and faculty members appreciate and embed the contributions of Indigenous ways of knowing within our programs and institutions? Find out by attending this half-day workshop, titled Building Capacity for Reconciliation: Transforming Teaching and Learning through Etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing). Note that a public lecture will follow later in the evening (7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m).
Together with Elder Albert Marshall, Dr. Cheryl Bartlett and other Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Knowledge Holders, you will have an opportunity to:
- Begin a co-learning journey of your own to contribute to Reconciliation in Action
- Contribute to an understanding of how we as administrators, students, and faculty members can appreciate and embed the contributions of indigenous ways of knowing within own programs and institutions.
- Build capacity to deconstruct and address social inequities that are both perpetuated by and engrained in our education systems
- Explore opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration and intersectoral leadership to support our teaching and learning.
The workshop,which includes lunch, is free for all Mount students, faculty and staff. The cost for outside attendees is $75/person.
