Thank you to Dr. Wemigwans (OISE), for the professional development session she held for our Faculty and Staff this week. Her 'Understanding Indigenous Views and Knowledge' discussion, allowed us to explore very important concepts and related pedagogies in meaningful and constructive ways. We look forward to her next virtual visit!

We look forward to learning more about Indigenous views and knowledge in our next session with her.
