Event Description


How would you include Indigenous knowledges and anti-colonial approaches to science in an undergraduate science course? The Making Connections project is a collaboration between student co-developers, the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and faculty from Forestry, Botany, Zoology, and Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences that seeks to design a new biology course focused on natural history collections and biodiversity science. Join the Making Connections team for a discussion on course design, inter-faculty collaboration, and the process of designing a course that centers Indigenous knowledge, approaches, and expertise in science and museum studies.  


  • Fabio Peres Schneider, Riley Plunkett, and Mailyn Tran (Student Co-Developers)  
  • Jacqueline Chambers, Bridgette Clarkston (Project Co-Leads)

Light refreshments will be provided

This session is part of the CTLT: Indigenous Initiatives Classroom Climate Series with support from UBC Skylight: Science Centre for Teaching and Learning.
