November 6th, 2019 – When Will We Be Ready? Sharing Responsibility for Indigenous Engagement in Teaching and Learning

What is the context for “mandatory curricula” related to Indigenous content in your department or Faculty? What impacts does this have on you and colleagues whose focus includes Indigenous studies? These questions and many more were discussed at the “When Will We Be Ready?” session co-sponsored by CTLT Indigenous Initiatives, the UBC Learning Circle, and the Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies.

The event featured perspectives of faculty who currently teach Indigenous-focused courses at UBC discussing the needs to share responsibility for Indigenous engagement in teaching and learning. The panel also explored the roles and responsibilities of non-expert faculty engaging with Indigenous content and topics in their courses and the significance of integrating Indigenous content and reconciliation.

Following the presentations, the audience was invited to participate in small group discussions.

This in person session was held at the UBC Long House.
