Planning a summer course that will include critical Indigenous perspectives, theoretical frameworks, and research? Looking for a space to share ideas about resources, readings and approaches you will take? (Classroom Climate Series)
Date/Time: April 1st, 9:30-11:00am
Place: IKBLC Seminar Room (2.22)
As an instructor you make difficult decisions about what readings and resources to include in your course syllabus. What informs your decisions are often the result of circumstances that are out of your control such as gaps in information, inaccurate prior knowledge and isolated ideas and beliefs among your students. This is a reality for many instructors who teach courses on Indigenous topics.
Please join us for a collaborative session that will provide a space for faculty to share ideas, readings and approaches they are thinking about bringing into their course design this summer. In this session we will share ways to incorporate innovative resources such as the unceded exhibit project materials and Xwi7xwa Library digital resources to support the objectives of your course.
In this session we will also provide a space to:
- Discuss the complexities and considerations needed when choosing resources and designing your course.
- Gain a clearer understanding of what colleagues are doing in their own classrooms around Indigenous topics.
- Explore Xwi7xwa Library and CTLT digital resources and ways these can support your courses.
Please bring your ideas, your course syllabus and questions. We will provide coffee, tea and snacks. We hope this discussion will be a way to support further spaces for collaborative sharing and support.
