2017-2018 Visiting Speaker Series

Date: October 18, 2017

Dr. Shelley Tulloch

“Decolonizing schooling through conscientization, resistance, and transformative action in Indigenous teacher education”

As part of the preparation for Inuit governance of schools within the Nunatsiavut land claims region, the Nunatsiavut Government and Memorial University of Newfoundland partnered to develop and deliver a community-based, culturally-infused Inuit bachelor of education program. In this presentation, you’ll hear students’ stories of their experiences in the ground-breaking program, including how the program created opportunities for awareness-building and critical reflection, opened safe spaces to express and enact resistance, and inspired the pre-service teachers toward transformative, critical actions. We argue that these processes are critical to equipping Inuit educational leaders who will incite ongoing decolonization of Inuit schools.

Time: 12:30 pm-1:20 pm

Location: 3D04
