Treaty EdCamp

Sat., Oct. 21, 2017 8:30 a.m. - Sat., Oct. 21, 2017 4:30 p.m.

Location: Education Auditorium, Faculty of Education

Join us for the third annual #TreatyEdCamp, a full-day professional development opportunity! This free event is open to teachers, pre-service teachers, and the general public - anyone who is interested in learning more about the legacy of residential schools, Treaty Education, the historical and contemporary implications of Treaty, and possibilities for decolonization and reconciliation.

Based loosely on the EdCamp model, this is PD organized for teachers by teachers, with a particular focus on the implementation of Treaty Education in classrooms as well as on the role of schools and educators in the work of reconciliation. We are bringing together some awesome teachers who are doing Treaty Education in their classrooms to share their experiences, and we ask that you come with an open mind and be prepared to share and discuss your own experiences. If you are interested in facilitating and/or sharing your experiences with Treaty Education, please email us at treatyedcamp@gmail.com!

Everyone will leave this event with new resources, a better understanding of Treaty Education in practice, a network of people to rely on for support, and a greater understanding of the significance of Treaty to our work as educators and to the process of reconciliation.

Bannock burgers (with both beef and veggie patties) will be available for purchase on the day of the event.

The event will also include an optional pre-conference event on the evening of October 20th (details coming soon).

This event is sponsored and organized by UR S.T.A.R.S. (Students & Teachers Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppressive Society).
