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.
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.
We will be joined by Kory Wilson (facilitator), Executive Director and Tami Pierce (observer), Associate Director, Indigenous Initiatives & Partnerships, British Columbia Institute of Technology.
Kory Wilson, BSc. JD, is the Executive Director of Indigenous Initiatives and Partnerships for British Columbia Institute of Technology. She is Kwakwaka’wakw. Kory is Chair of the National Indigenous Education Committee of Colleges and Institutions Canada and she has over 20 years of experience in post-secondary education, community development, and the legal profession. She has a deep commitment to education and has dedicated her working life to ensuring that under-represented learners succeed, both within learning institutions and the larger community. Good governance and supporting communities to move towards self-government is a specialty and passion. Innovative and creative solutions are needed to move Reconciliation into ReconciliACTION. Education is the key and access to knowledge is vital to move everyone forward.
