Event Description

UBC Vancouver | In-person

This event is part of the 2023 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 2–9, 2023.

Come and explore multi-modal Land Acknowledgements in the classroom on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam). Models of spoken, written, and video-based Land Acknowledgements will be demonstrated with an emphasis on accessibility (including ALT Text, captions, and language ease for EAL students). We will then workshop ways to guide students in incorporating their own Land Acknowledgements across different types of common assignments (paper based, PPT presentations, videos, etc.). Authentic student examples will provide the framework for discussion. Show students The Power of Place in Teaching and Learning.
