Dialogue 4 – Healing Practices and Pedagogy: Thursday, April 21, 11:30 am - 1 pm

What does pedagogy have to do with healing? Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching and learning. Western perspective includes five major approaches including the constructivist, collaborative, reflective, integrative and inquiry-based learning models.

The TRC called upon Indigenous people of Canada and non-Indigenous Canadians to come together in a concerted effort to repair the harms of colonization in order to advance reconciliation and healing. This will require: a transformation of education, infusion of local Indigenous pedagogy and creation of programs that lay pathways to healing. What does this mean?
