Spirit, heart, mind, and body: Holistic ways of knowing can lead to a satisfying environment for working and learning well with one another!  (back)
 
Description:
Marcella LaFever’s 2016 article, “Switching from Bloom to the medicine wheel: creating learning outcomes that support Indigenous ways of knowing in post-secondary education,” advocates for strategies that include spiritual domains like honoring, valuing, and belonging in our classrooms and learning communities. How can we deepen our sense of commitment toward a common goal of learning from one another? This highly interactive session will explore this topic as we create “lifelines” with, and between, one another. You will leave the session having built and strengthened lasting collegial relationships that will enrich your interactions with colleagues and students.

Event is free, but registration is required. Lunch of pizza, soda/water, and cookies supplied. You may also opt to bring your own lunch.
