The UPEI Teaching and Learning Centre and the Faculty of Indigenous Knowledge, Education, Research, and Applied Studies will host the second virtual talk in the Teaching Matters! Series on Monday, January 10 from 12:30 to 2:00 pm Atlantic.

Métis scholar, Yvonne Poitras Pratt and allied scholar, Patricia J. Danyluk from the University of Calgary will present “Exploring reconciliatory pedagogy and its possibilities through educator-led praxis.” They are the 2021 recipients of the Alan Blizzard Award from the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, which is given to collaborative projects that increase the effectiveness of student learning.

Dr. Poitras Pratt and Dr. Danyluk have been working with local First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities, responding to learner and community-identified needs as they intentionally seek out and integrate FNMI community perspectives within their academic work. UPEI faculty and staff as well as post-secondary colleagues in the Atlantic region are invited to learn about their collaborative work around Reconciliatory Pedagogy.

Details on this lecture and the link to register can be found on the event poster.
