Whisperings of the Land is the theme for a new Indigenous Speaker’s Series towards understanding Indigenization. Indigenous people have always had a close relationship to the land. There has also been an historical disruption in land relocations, land desecration and pillaging for economic gain. Our presenters will relate to how the land speaks to them.
The first speaker will be Dr. James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains.
January 23, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)
Education Building, Room 210
The Indigenous Speaker Series is open to all Education faculty, staff, and students.
With the Faculty of Education’s recent introduction of a new Teaching Elementary School Mathematics (TESM) certificate program, a general information event for teachers and administrators who want to learn more will be held:
TESM Certificate Information Evening
Monday, November 20, 2017
6:30 – 7:30 pm
ED 341, Faculty of Education, University of Regina
For more information, please contact Dr. Kathy Nolan at Kathy.Nolan@uregina.ca
The TESM Certificate Information Evening opens with a brief presentation to address key questions about the TESM certificate: *WHO is it for? *HOW many courses in the program? *WHAT are those courses? *WHY would I take this certificate program? The presentation is followed by time to ask questions, mingle, and enjoy a few snacks.
This event is hosted by the Mathematics Education subject area and the Faculty of Education Undergraduate Program Office. Course instructors, current students in the program, and student advisors will be on hand to respond to your questions.
