CTLT Classroom Climate Series
A monthly workshop series where faculty, teaching assistants, researchers, graduate students, and staff from all over the University (Vancouver Campus) have the opportunity to challenge their own assumptions about what they have learned about Indigenous people, become more critically aware of their teaching and research practices, and learn more about how they engage with topics that challenge their own social location within the institution.
The Classroom Climate Series is a set of professional development workshops offered once a month through the academic year. Participants gain the skills and confidence to establish a productive and responsive classroom climate for working with Indigenous content and socially contentious issues in the classroom. The series also provides a space to share teaching and research practices and learn about engaging in conversations about place, power, and social location.
