Thanks for participating in "Integrating Indigenous Content into Your Course Design" last week. It was a wonderful way to wrap up the term -- in rich conversation with such an engaged group ready to "dive in"! As promised, here are some of the resources we wanted to share:
- UBC Media release announcing the sʔi:ɬqəy̓qeqən post with Brent Sparrow's speaking about the post: http://news.ubc.ca/2016/04/06/musqueam-post-dedicated-at-ubc-vancouver-campus-today/
- google folder with slide deck, learning resources activities, photos, and more! You can also share upload and share resources with this group! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BxBC6vVs77DkMk9vc0xFdEpoOEE (thanks for creating this Emily!)
- link to Classroom Climate contextual layers poster and article http://indigenousinitiatives.ctlt.ubc.ca/classroom-climate/our-work-with-classroom-climate/
- territory acknowledgements resources: http://indigenousinitiatives.ctlt.ubc.ca/2016/09/26/classroom-climate-series-territory-acknowledgment/
For those of you who have not submitted feedback on the workshop, here's a reminder and small plug -- since it's our first time offering this workshop, we are so interested to know how the day went for you! We are hoping to offer the session again in April and would welcome anyone from this group to come back to share, reflect, and/or co-facilitate a portion of the day with us. It would be a big favour to us if you could complete the feedback survey for the session!
There seemed to be interest in staying in touch as perhaps an informal community of practice or peer support for one another. I've addressed this message to everyone who attended the workshop and registered using their @UBC email addresses, but for the sake of privacy have included all of you who don't have UBC faculty and staff email addresses as BCC (this includes anyone with an @ALUMNI.UBC.CA email). If that's you and you consent to share your contact info with the rest of the group, feel free to "reply all" so everyone knows where to reach you and/or drop me a line to stay connected with this group.
Take care and happy holidays!!
Janey, with Erin, Jennifer, and Amy
Subject: May 25 workshop follow-up
Happy Monday to all!
Thanks again for last Thursday's energizing workshop. It's always fantastic to share space with so many of you who are thinking through how to bring Indigenous perspectives and knowledges into your work and to learn about your different contexts and interests in doing so. I've created this email group to share out some follow-up info as well as for those of you who wanted to stay in touch.
I've created a google folder containing some of the resources we shared during the workshop https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B3q4cUHfZ-XXLWl6X0Q5aXJkWE0?usp=sharing. If you find anything missing from here just send me a line and I'll do my best to add it. You are also welcome to contribute to the Muddiest Point and Resources documents enclosed.
One last thing. Please take a moment to fill out this post-workshop feedback survey. It's only 3 questions, and the information you provide back to us is so valuable for us in planning future offerings of this workshop:
Take care! Janey
