This session will focus on key considerations that come with teachers making a shift from teaching and learning 'about' the experiences and memories of Indigenous peoples to teaching and learning 'from' Indigenous insights and understandings. Particular attention will be given to the concept of ethical relationality and Treaty teachings.
Dr. Donald has worked and studied in Southern Alberta. SAPDC is excited to support this learning opportunity for our region, this will assist teachers and system leaders in helping all of us and our students better understand Indigenous insights and ways of teaching and learning.
Dr. Dwayne Donald is a descendent of the amiskwaciwiyiniwak (Beaver Hills people) and the Papaschase Cree and is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta.
