Upcoming webinar: “A whisper of true learning”
June 11, 2014
In this webinar, Belinda C. Daniels describes her journey to developing her Indigenous teacher identity. A pivotal moment in her teaching career – a “whisper of true learning” – made her question what kind of teacher she was going to be, and awakened her nêhiyâw identity. “It made me realize that I had forgotten who I was and, at the same time, that it was my responsibility to remember where I came from for the benefit of my students,” she says. In her presentation, Belinda will explore the constructs that had either diminished or enhanced her identity development within the experiences of formal and non-formal learning.
The webinar will be held on Monday, June 23, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. EST
This is a free professional development opportunity for educators who are committed to ensuring the success of Indigenous students in Canada.
