Keynote: THE WORK OF GENERATIONS IN EDUCATING FOR THE FUTURE

 

Education is the means by which a society ensures its own future. But what kind of future do we want? Is it one in which every new generation is destined to supersede the last, or in which generations run alongside one another, allowing young people and their elders to work together in the ongoing task of fashioning a future for all? The tragedy of modern education has been to drive a wedge between the curiosity of the young and the wisdom of the old. For there to be a future worth living at all, it is not just prudent but necessary to bring them back together again.

  • Dr. Jan Hare, British Columbia universitehtas ja Anishinaabe-kwe oahppan olmmoš ja oahpaheaddji M’Chigeeng First Nation čearddas, Ontarios, Kanada

 

 

 Dr. Jan Hare is an Anishinaabe-kwe scholar and educator from the M’Chigeeng First Nation, located in northern Ontario, Canada.

Her research is concerned with improving educational outcomes for Indigenous learners and centering Indigenous knowledge systems within educational reform from early childhood education, K to 12 schooling, through to post-secondary settings, recognizing the holistic and multidisciplinary nature of Indigenous education.

Keynote: Trickster Comes to Teacher Education: 

The trickster or shape shifter is an important cultural being within Indigenous learning traditions in Canada and figures prominently in First Nations storytelling. This significant cultural figure uses strategies of creation, humour, dialogic pedagogy, and experience to upset dominant paradigms of our world, including education. Through the metaphor of the trickster, who acts with critical purpose, this presentation (re)imagines the much needed transformation of teacher education to empower Indigenous students in advancing their own journeys of decolonization and reclamation and consider learning opportunities for all students that can be enriched by Indigenous education.
