Feedback form is now closed.
Indigenization and internationalization initiatives at Canadian postsecondary institutions occur in parallel and may sometimes be complementary. At the University of Saskatchewan and UBC, these educational and organizational projects share some common ground, while maintaining unique and important distinctions. Moreover, as educational and organization developers, our experience with them is that they are expressed, operationalized, and practiced in regionally and locally specific ways that are determined by institutional and Indigenous community-based factors.
The facilitators of this workshop will share stories designed to engage, disarm, and inspire deeper understanding of the similarities, differences, and local realities for indigenization and internationalization efforts in Canadian postsecondary education. In this workshop, participants will engage in facilitated small-group discussions that explore these themes. Observations and ideas from these conversations will be documented and shared, including strategies for harnessing synergies and honouring differences between indigenization and internationalization initiatives in postsecondary education, as well as strategies for translating these initiatives into movements for societal transformation.
