Embedding Relationality within the Class: A Conversation with the Indigenous Community at UNBWed, 10 Jun 202011:00am - 12:00pm36/100Amanda Myran

Introducing a Guide to "Indigenizing" Your Course

UNB has a guide to help faculty and instructors make their courses more welcoming for Indigenous students. It is called Piluwitahasuwawsuwakon and Your Course and can be found on this Web page: 

https://www.unb.ca/fredericton/cetl/tls/resources/rubrics/index.html Piluwitahasuwawsuwakon, pronounced "bill-wee-duh-huz-zoo-wows-sue-wah’-gn" is a Wolastoqey term meaning “Allowing your thinking to change so that action will follow in a good way toward truth.” It encapsulates the spirit of what must change on the part of students and instructors for our courses to feel truly welcoming to Indigenous students.

 

Amanda Myran, UNB's Piluwitahasuwin (AVP of Indigenous Engagement) will lead the session with support from her team: Starlit Simon, Aboriginal Student Advisor, Nancy Harn, Indigenous Wellness Coordinator, and Katelyn Copage, Wabanaki Experiential Education Coordinator.  Bev Bramble, CETL Instructional Designer, will introduce the guide and highlight some key elements in it.

Course Design Conundrums: Reflections on 14 years of Course DesignThu, 25 Jun 202011:00am - 12:00pm22/100Bev Bramble, CETL Instructional Designer

Bev will present and discuss with attendees some of the principles of course design that seem to be commonly misunderstood and/or elusively difficult to implement, based on his 14 years of study, practice and reflection as an instructional designer at UNB. Things such as:

- If the research says one of the most impactful teaching practices is frequent student application of concepts and individualized feedback, why do we have classes of hundreds? What can we do?

- What is the "active" ingredient in "active and collaborative learning?"

- Why do all course designers seem to think that lecturing is bad? Is it really?

- Who needs to memorize anything when they can just "google it?"

- Is it ironic to lecture about active and collaborative learning?

- Are students just paying customers whose every whim we must indulge?
