Decolonizing Education as an Act of Reconciliation
There is an amazing professional development opportunity coming in 2017 which all educators should take note of. “Decolonizing Education as an Act of Reconciliation” is a seminar intended to introduce educators to historical and contemporary understandings of colonization, decolonization and anti-oppressive education and how these concepts can lead to addressing reconciliation. The featured presenters for the day will be Dr. Alex Wilson and Dr. Verna St. Denis. The event takes place from March 9-10, 2017 at McMaster House (191 Harcourt St., Winnipeg) and will cost members $150. Of course, SRTA members always have the ability to seek funding from the SRTA PD fund for opportunities such as this.
