A Model for Decolonizing and Indigenizing Teaching and Learning Practices
Facilitated by Lindsay Brant, Centre for Teaching and Learning
Tuesday, March 8, 2022; 10:30 – 11:30am
The Pedagogy of Peace is purposeful teaching and learning model that builds upon the three core teachings of the Haudenosaunee Great Law of Peace, which are peace, strength, and a good mind. It is a holistic model of teaching and learning and provides a framework that supports personal and professional growth, balance, and a growth mindset approach to both educational and life journeys. This approach infuses knowledge of cultural teachings, Indigenous Ways of Knowing, holistic well-being awareness and trauma-informed care, to create a compassionate approach that educators can adopt, adapt, and model to create inclusive learning environments and classroom communities for all students. In this session, Lindsay will explain the Pedagogy of Peace model and provide examples of ways it has been adopted and adapted across various disciplines at Queen's University.
