2023 CATE KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Title: Kikinamagozewin A place of learning: Faculties of Education and Research must Decolonize!
Moving forward together, how can we collectively break down barriers, open doors, work in circles, thinking outside of the box toward creating the necessary pathways and radical transformations to the ways of doing “business” within universities across Canada? Are Indigenous knowledge systems being honoured and promoted in today’s schools, post-secondary institutions, and educational research? How can we look to the past in terms of First Nations, Métis and Inuit ways of knowing, teaching, and learning to take a relational, sustainable, and meaningful leap forward in teacher education? By listening to the voices and lived experiences of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people an ongoing, incredibly rich collaboration is very possible in and with community, on the land and on campuses. Together, what can we put in place within teacher education to live “minopimadiziiwin,” a healthy, good life?
Nicholas Ng-A-Fook is a Professor and Vice-Dean of Graduate Studies at the Faculty of Education within the University of Ottawa.
