REGISTRATION and conference updates:
Context/Intention: As instructors prepare for online teaching in September 2020, many are eager to share planning ideas and resources that draw upon the wisdom traditions, teaching philosophies and values of Indigenous educators and ongoing alliances between Indigenous and critical settler educators especially as these shed light on approaches and practical strategies for virtual and distance teaching.
This is not an academic or research conference. This workshop is envisioned as a timely opportunity for educators to gather, share, and brainstorm as we are in the midst of planning September courses. The focus is on emergence (articulating core values, wisdom traditions and teaching philosophies to discern key intentions, tensions, and possibilities for enacting these in virtual and remote teaching formats) and convergence (bringing these emergent ideas, insights, and questions into threads, themes, synergy in the final session). We’re particularly encouraging secondary and post -secondary educators bringing a history of exploring and grounding your teaching in Indigenous, decolonizing and antiracist pedagogies (including treaty and reconciliation-building education) to join in these sharing sessions. Experience teaching online is not expected.
Schedule: The workshop is planned to embody values of holistic learning, care, and exchange. The day will feature a keynote on exemplary practices, small group breakouts for sharing and brainstorming, in-depth discussions, and nourishing whole-body breaks. Throughout the day we will be adding to a resource-sharing folder to bring to your course planning!
