Indigenous Voices is a staff and faculty development initiative that aims to create a shared space for dialogue, learning, and collaborative action to catalyze individual and systemic change at the University of Saskatchewan.
This program is designed to meet the learning needs of a range of participants with various levels of knowledge and experience in Aboriginal education. Programming will engage, enlighten, and support faculty and staff to explore four layers of themed knowledge:
- Aboriginal peoples in Saskatchewan: including languages, cultures, histories, and relationships with governments;
- The Indigenous renaissance of reclaiming and restoring Indigenous knowledges, languages, cultures, and governance;
- Aboriginal learners and the role of professional identities in creating in a postcolonial Canada; and
- Decolonizing pedagogies and the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing in curricula and assessment.
The Indigenous Voices program is customized for each department or college that we work with. If you would like to discuss a potential engagement, contact Stryker Calvez from the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching and Learning.
