Presenter: Kathy Sanford, Curriculum and Instruction and Tim Hopper, Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education
Using Indigenous principles learned from colleague Dr. Lorna Williams, two non-Indigenous professors (Kathy and Tim) share ways in which these principles have shaped learning experiences for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. We will share Lil’wat principles used in our courses as we work to create respectful and inclusive curricula, welcoming learning environments, and culturally responsive pedagogies and assessment. These Principles include: 1) Celhcelh - Importance of focusing on the learning of colleagues before our own learning, enabling learning opportunities exponentially greater than if we focus only on our own learning; 2) Emhaka7 - Consideration of how our work will benefit the next seven generations to come; our class work will influence future generations of students and teachers, and 3) A7xekcal  - Finding our passion and then investing in this passion in our work to energize the community and inspire the learning of others.
