Special Panel Event: Indigenous perspectives within Applied Science professions and academia

Registration info


We are excited to invite you to a special panel as part of our Applied Science focus on National Indigenous History Month: Indigenous Perspectives within Applied Science Professions and Academia. Our goal is to help raise awareness, engage in dialogue, and discuss actions that we can and should be taking as a Faculty. Our aim is that this panel will elevate Indigenous voices within disciplines and share practices and knowledge Indigenous people bring to enrich the faculty and programs they work within.

The panel will explore how Indigenous faculty in Applied Science disciplines approach their classrooms and professional practices. We will hear about their motivation and how they apply and create the tools they use and share with other peoples. We will learn how these faculty members design and decolonize their classrooms and practices.
