Come and join Jennifer Ward, Educational Developer from the University of Alberta, as we explore ideas and concepts around Indigenization of the academy. We will engage with Indigenous pedagogies, protocols, and worldviews. We will explore how to weave Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing into our teaching and learning.
