Event Description

The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) Indigenous Initiatives team will be hosting our first kick-off event for the academic year, Grounding Our Practice in Place. This session will highlight positionality and place through educational resources as well as share new offerings for the upcoming academic term. Special guests across campus will be invited to share about resources and recent initiatives.

Come join us for some light refreshments, meet and learn more about CTLT Indigenous Initiatives, and connect with colleagues who are interested in classroom climate and Indigenous engagement in teaching and learning.

We look forward to seeing you there!

About CTLT Indigenous Initiatives:  

CTLT Indigenous Initiatives develops and offers programming, resources, and consultations focused on Indigenous engagement in curriculum, pedagogy, classroom climate, and professional development.

To facilitate respectful dialogue in learning spaces on campus and within the communities we work with, we provide support and professional development for faculty, graduate students, teaching assistants, who are teaching in face-to-face, online, or blended classes.

Indigenous Initiatives supports the UBC teaching and learning community in connecting with the unceded Musqueam land on which our learning and work takes place. Our resources, programming, and services are informed by our relationship with the Musqueam First Nation. We recognize the value that this ongoing relationship brings to our work and to the university more broadly. We make every effort to continue this relationship respectfully and in accordance with the Memorandum of Affiliation created between the Musqueam Nation and UBC.
