What Does Meaningful Decolonizing and Indigenizing the Academy Look Like and What are its Implications for Teaching and Learning?

For those of you who may be interested in the Concordia Centre for Teaching and Learning winter-fest activities.

The aim of this workshop is to increase participants’ knowledge, critical analysis and understanding about the complexities of what ‘decolonizing and Indigenizing’ the academy means within Indigenous theoretical frameworks in relation to: role of faculty, curriculum, pedagogy, institutional policies and practices, governance, students and Indigenous communities. What critical lessons can you draw from learning about the importance of ‘decolonizing and Indigenizing’ the academy? What implications does decolonizing and Indigenizing have on your role as faculty in relationship to Indigenous students, faculty, Indigenous communities, and the wider community? These are just some of the critical questions participants will engage and examine in this workshop.
