Learning Lab: Integrating Place and History into Teaching and Learning

Name: Learning Lab: Integrating Place and History into Teaching and Learning

Date: Tuesday, October 30

Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm

Location: Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Seminar Room 2.22

Description: Learning Labs are a hands on opportunity to join in conversations, workshop ideas, actively engage with existing resources and contribute to the development of new ones in order to enhance and support teaching and learning around Aboriginal and other socially contentious issues. These sessions are led by participants and facilitators in the Aboriginal Programs Classroom Climate series and are a way to gain feedback and insight from others who have similar interests.

This workshop will provide you with hands-on opportunities to explore how you could make your teaching and students’ learning locally and historically specific. The context for this workshop is grounded in framework of how we talk about, learn about and acknowledge place here at UBC on the unceded territory of the Musqueam people. How can we get our students and others actively participating in and contributing to this conversation?

During this session we will present a timeline that documents major historical events involving Aboriginal students at UBC, while locating the events in institutional, provincial, and national contexts. Through a variety of activities participants will also be asked to think about ways they might use this resource within their own classrooms and learning spaces and ways that this resource could be further developed.
