Educators Journey Towards Reconciliation

Educators Journey Towards Reconciliation. During our two days together, we will go through a journey to discover challenges and best practices in decolonizing the classroom and, our education practice. We will explore strategies for creating a culturally safe learning environment and indigenizing through reconciling Indigenous worldviews, ways of knowing and being while we Indigenize our teaching practice and curriculum. We will practice reciprocity, respect, responsibility, and relevance throughout our journey together.

This workshop sets a foundation for the Weaving Knowledge Systems workshop.

Weaving Knowledge Systems

Weaving Knowledge Systems (formerly Indigenizing the Curriculum) is a two-day workshop that provides you with hands-on experience and resources that will bring together Indigenous and Western worldviews based on your subject area. We will explore experiential activities to weave cultural safety/humility, Indigenous Ways of knowing and being, Indigenous worldviews, into your course(s)/practice. Bring at least one course syllabi, lesson plan(s), any resources etc., and a laptop/tablet.

**This workshop is designed for those who have previously completed a course/workshop on Decolonization and Reconciliation. Priority will be given to those who have completed the Educator’s Journey Towards Reconciliation. If you have completed a different course/workshop, please contact Lorna Andrews directly for permission to register for this workshop.

Over the summer I completed the Building Strengths online module. This program consists of five units that you can work through at your own pace. And you get a certificate of completion!

I found the module to be thoughtfully constructed and easy to follow. It includes useful interviews and follow-up quizzes to assess your comprehension of the material. Most important is that I learned more about what "inclusiveness" really means and how to prepare and deliver my courses to a diverse audience that might have challenges of which I am not, necessarily, aware.
