The 2018 National Gathering for Indigenous Education held this upcoming November is being hosted in Edmonton and the Call for Presentation proposals is now open.
“Transforming Education Through Reconciliation” is the theme for 2018.
Indigenous education is a reciprocal process that includes cultures, traditions, histories, Indigenous ways of knowing and being that engage students, staff, parents, and community partners to collaborate for student success. Indigenous student success is critical for the future of Canada. The National Gathering is a place where educators and partners in education can celebrate, renew and rebuild relationships and share experiences with a mutual goal of improving educational outcomes of K- 12 Indigenous students. This conference is another step towards reconciliation and presents workshops within four categories: knowing, feeling, doing, being.
We welcome proposals on topics related to the following areas:
Mental – Knowing
Emotional – Feeling
Physical – Doing
Spiritual – Being
