Title : Supporting northern educators: A culturally proficient perspective
Description : Cultural Proficiency is an equity-based approach to changing institutions and those who work within them, so they are more supportive of diversity (Terrell & Lindsey, 2009, p.20). Cultural proficiency is also a personal journey as we each learn to value our role in making things better for today and for future generations. This session explores the ‘unpacking’ of the concepts of ‘expert’ and ‘best practices in education’ from the context of providing professional development opportunities for both credentialed northern educators and teachers-in-training in the Kenanow Bachelor of Education program. Session participants will be invited to contribute to the discussion.
