Brown Bag Series

The Aboriginal Education Council and Transnational Law and Justice Network’s Speaker Series are hosting a Brown Bag discussion series for Faculty of the University of Windsor. The purpose of this discussion series is for faculty members to get together and openly share their experiences with, and ideas for, using course materials developed by Indigenous authors and researchers, and for drawing on, and learning from, pedagogical practices found in Indigenous communities. Each Brown Bag will begin with short presentations on a chosen topic. However, the idea is to have an open discussion among interested Faculty on different approaches to decolonizing their pedagogy.

The Brown Bag Series will resume in Fall 2018
