Session to share research on experience with Indigenous studies

A lunchtime session Wednesday, March 28, will engage faculty in discussion of the limited knowledge of Indigenous peoples exhibited by students in university classrooms.

Instructors Heather Krohn of nursing and Natasha Wiebe of education will lead the fourth event in the brown bag speaker series hosted by the Aboriginal Education Council and the Transnational Law and Justice Network, at noon in the Oak Room, Vanier Hall.

The series brings together instructors to 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.

Drs. Krohn and Wiebe will present their study, “My Eyes Have Been Opened:  The Student Experience of an Indigenous Studies Course.” Find more information, including registration instructions, on the event website.
