In this two-day workshop Kathy’s passion for research will engage participants in a critical examination of euro-western research and its challenges and limitation in and on Indigenous peoples contexts. In this first workshop, participants will gain a foundational knowledge based of the history of research on Indigenous peoples while exploring the continuum of research paradigms toward an Indigenous research paradigm. This session will transforms ones perspective in how they understand the role and place of Indigenous knowledge in a research journey. Participants will leave with an appreciation and increased understanding of what research is and how one might engage in research. These two days will widen your lens to inspire and ground you in understanding Indigenous research.
COVID-19 RESPONSE FROM THE CENTRE FOR INDIGEGOGY
During the Covid-19 pandemic, many institutions decided to make a transition to remote on-line learning. The Centre for Indigegogy resisted this move because we felt that Indigegogy had to be experienced in person and in relationship. However, new experiences and exposure with real-time remote teaching and learning has caused us to reconsider the value of real-time remote teaching and learning while holding space to enact the principles of Indigegogy.
Our decision to move forward became an opportunity for us to re-envision what it means to offer Indigenous Centre Wholistic Professional Development through ‘real-time’ remote learning. We had to consider:
- How do we maintain Circle Protocols?
- How do we continue to engage in Ceremony?
- How do we hold the principles of Indigegogy (teaching the ways of the people IN the ways of the people)?
There is never a replacement for being with people in person but during this time of social distancing, we believe that we continue to offer quality programming that honours Indigegogy.
We look forward to being in ‘real-time’ remote teaching and learning Circles with you.
