Virtual Professional Development Workshops

Please join us on Zoom for two free professional development workshops focused on facilitating inquiry-based learning in an inclusive classroom setting. 

The Importance of Indigenous Perspectives in STEM

Monday, February 7, 2022
7–8 p.m. 

Join Joseph Pitawanakwat of Creators Garden and Haley Higdon of Natural Curiosity as they discuss the value of Indigenous perspectives in STEM. Explore the importance of our relationships with the land and our more-than-human relatives. Plus, uncover cross-curricular connections between traditional and western knowledge systems as you learn about Indigenous science, including Anishinaabe plant-based medicine. Enjoy an introduction to environmental inquiry as a “reconciliation pedagogy,” and find out how it can facilitate understanding of Indigenous perspectives through lasting, reciprocal relationships between educators, students and the natural world that are rooted in learning and reconciliation. 

This workshop has been designed for educators teaching or interested in junior and intermediate divisions; however, all educators are welcome to join.
