This workshop examines, from multiple perspectives, issues related to the inclusion of Aboriginal peoples on our campuses. The workshop provides historical and contemporary information about laws and policies, demographics, and cultural and economic realities. Participants will have the opportunity to apply new ideas and awareness, and build skills, by working through practical scenarios drawn from everyday work and life at McGill.
Participants will have the opportunity to examine how race and culture affect daily life in the McGill community. This workshop addresses the challenges of fostering diversity-receptive cultural attitudes, reducing structural barriers in University life, and building and maintaining respectful spaces for interpersonal engagement. Through case studies, participants will have the chance to practice identifying and responding to the types of discrimination most commonly encountered in campus life.
The Faculty of Education will soon be re-establishing the audiovisual equipment loans service formerly managed by the Education Library & Curriculum Resources Centre. While we still have a lot to do in preparation we are optimistic that everything will be up and running by the beginning of the second week of classes.
