Learning Together About First Nations Pedagogy

Published on

The First Nations Pedagogy project is conceived as a learning community for educators, elders, curriculum developers, educational leaders, and students to share resources, discuss practices, and support one another in creating the best possible educational experiences for our aboriginal learners. While the basic framework is in place, a key component requiring further thinking and development is a “Learning Centre”, a Moodle site to co-create, share, and implement learning activities that may be utilized by teachers and other educational leaders who work with aboriginal students. During this session we invite you to participate in the design of this Learning Centre.
