Event Description


This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from June 3–6, 2024.

Launching in Summer 2024, Indigenous Learning Pathways (ILP) is a multi-course online training program led by CTLT Indigenous Initiatives and the Orientations & Onboarding program in Central HR, and involving collaboration and support from numerous staff, faculty, and programs across UBC. Through carefully curated spotlights of in-person and online resources for Indigenous-focused learning already available at UBC Vancouver, ILP supports new employees with meaningfully and respectfully engaging with Indigenous histories, knowledges, perspectives, and realities, in their role.

Throughout its development process, Indigenous Learning Pathways has centred the 5R’s of Indigenous Education: the values of reciprocity, relationality, respect, relevance, and responsibility. This has involved mindful collaboration, humility in the process of our own learning, and advocating for change within the context of colonial institutional processes. Attend this session to learn more about the development process behind ILP, including partnership approaches, lessons learned along the way, and opportunities that emerged to create systemic change as we carved out space for this work.
