Indigenous Learning Circle – Meeting 2
February 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Indigenous Education at Niagara College & the Centre for Academic Excellence invite faculty, academic leaders, and staff to participate in an inaugural Indigenous Learning Circle (ILC). The Circle will provide a venue for NC educators to engage with Indigenous perspectives and critically reflect on their role at Niagara College.
We invite 15 educators to meet monthly to explore, through readings as well as through conversation, the issues shaping the experience of Indigenous students at Niagara College. Between each Learning Circle meeting, educators may be asked to apply suggestions to their own work environments, critically reflect on that experience, and share at the next session.
This professional learning opportunity is intended for NC campus community members who contribute to student learning and the student experience at our college. This group may include but is not limited to: part-time and full-time faculty members, student services staff, administrators, etc.
Participants are asked to commit to attending all four 2-hour sessions throughout the winter semester. Due to the sensitive nature of the topics explored in this initiative, we ask that you fully read the information above and are prepared to fully commit to all four circle meeting to ensure a safe and strong sense of community for all circle members.
