BCIT and BCcampus would like to invite you to participate in two interactive Zoom sessions about the Pulling Together Indigenization Guides where we will focus on the Teachers and Instructors Guide.
Our first event will be on July 9, 2020 and our second event will be on September 17, 2020. In order to participate in the September 17 session, you must attend the July 9 session.
We will discuss how to Indigenize and decolonize the classroom in the pursuit of reconciliation. Participants will be expected to have read the Guide prior to the sessions, and it is strongly suggested that you read the Pulling Together Foundations Guide. We kindly request participants join us for both events, as they are connected and build on each other.
