Not Just Another Webinar- Indigenization, Reconciliation, Inclusion: Critical Questions for Educational Developers and our Field
Discussion 1 – Indigenization, Reconciliation, Inclusion: Critical Questions for Educational Developers and our Field (Trevor Holmes & Jennifer Ward)
Participants in this session will hear modelled, and then engage in, some critical dialogue about the settler frameworks in which developers do development. Development is itself a loaded term, of course, and as a field, educational development typically takes a eurocentric and liberal humanist orientation to making better institutions or better teachers. The assumptions the field makes about organizational and individual development may make it difficult to admit different ways of organizing, knowing, and being. The Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation report have given many of us pause, and (we hope) challenged some of our field-defining assumptions. Drawing upon writing and theory by Indigenous authors, this session takes a critical look at institutional approaches to Indigenization and our collective responsibility.
