About this learning opportunity

"Supporting your school community in acquiring and applying foundational knowledge about First Nations, Métis and Inuit for the benefit of all students"  (Leadership Quality Standard - Competency #5)

This one day workshop will provide you with the opportunity to unpack Competency #5, delve into this complex work and create a draft implementation plan to effectively lead this initiative in your school community.  Several templates, tools, strategies, guiding questions, and resources will be shared. Our Indigenous consultant will assist you in contextualizing Indigenous content, as well as provide wisdom in relation to potentially sensitive, emotional or political challenges. There will be multiple opportunities for sharing, collaborating and learning from each other. You will also begin to establish evidence to indicate your success in enriching Indigenous foundational knowledge in your school community.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
