There are many reasons why you might want to create a record of your time spent with Indigenous Voices. We are delighted to communicate that at the end of its programming year, Indigenous Voices will offer those who have attended gatherings (totaling 20 hours or more), the opportunity to receive a ""Certificate of Participation." Participants will request this certificate by contacting Tereigh Ewert-Bauer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Alternatively, if you have attended fewer than 20 hours, you may still document your participation by following this link, signing in, and printing off the information, which will detail the gatherings you have attended.
The Indigenous Voices staff and faculty development program in Aboriginal education, is moving beyond the pilot group to the entire campus.
Participant feedback from the Indigenous Voices pilot of 2012-2013 was positive, with participants indicating that they felt they had grown professionally and personally. The pilot was restricted to faculty and staff from the College of Education, and the GMC/ULC. So many people outside the pilot group expressed interest in participating in the program last year, and we felt awful about turning people away. But this fall, we are able to welcome you with open arms, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the many program offerings.
Based on staff and faculty participant feedback, the Indigenous Voices pilot of 2012-2013 seemed to be a great success. With the feedback from Elders, facilitators, and participants, we are making further improvements to the program over the summer, in preparation for our campus-wide launch in September, 2013! So many people outside the pilot group expressed interest in participating in the program last year, and we felt awful about turning people away. But this fall, we are able to welcome you with open arms, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the many program offerings.
Highlights of the program experience are that you will: learn from a rich variety of facilitators from on and off campus, find yourself engaged in experiential learning environments, reap the benefits of learning in an inter-disciplinary environment, and will find yourself learning in a holisitic manner-- mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
