Indigenous Scholars Sharing Circle


Call for Expressions of Interest:
Indigenous Scholars Sharing Circle Fall 2023
We invite all Indigenous scholars across the University of Alberta community to take part in CTL’s Fall 2023 Indigenous Scholars Sharing Circle.

The purpose of these Sharing Circles is to reach the “heart” of things rather than merely engaging the intellect. We believe in a more holistic process of exchanging information. We use the four quadrants of the medicine wheel - head, heart, physical, and emotional - to get to know each other in a manner that might seem casual but is highly effective for long-term learning and getting to know one another.

Our conversations in the Fall season can focus on the opportunities and challenges of Indigenization and decolonization in teaching and learning in our respective fields.

The Fall Indigenous Scholars Sharing Circle for the U of A Indigenous scholars' and teachers’ community is open to Indigenous educators (who are Indigenous to the lands colonially known as Canada) across campus, including instructors, graduate students, and parafaculty educators.

Time Commitment:
Tuesdays 9 - 10 a.m. Mountain time - specifically, September 12, 19, October 3, 10, 17, November 7, 14, 21, December 5, 12

Andrea Menard, LLB, LLM, PhD student (she/they/ᐃᐧᔭᐋᐧᐤ wiyawâw), Métis Nation of Alberta citizen, Lead Educational Developer, Indigenizing Curricula and Pedagogies, Centre for Teaching and Learning
