You’re invited to join fellow snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ colleagues for a lunch time study circle to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and beyond. In this bi-weekly series, co-facilitators Earl Einarson and Alex Samur will lead a discussion on Pulling Together: Guide for Curriculum Developers.
The series aims to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous colleagues together to share and co-learn from the guide. Weekly topics focus on approaches to integrating Indigenous content, and educational perspectives in designing, developing, reviewing and adapting course curriculum.
Sessions will be online or in-person depending on participants’ preference and will be held every other Thursday from Sept. 22 to Nov. 17, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
