How do I get started? Creating safer learning environments for Indigenous students in STEM at UBC – November 29, 2022

November 29, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Within this session, we will explore a recently developed resource that responds to commonly asked questions about how STEM faculty can ‘get started’ with “Indigenizing our curriculum’ (UBC ISP Goal #4) and creating safer classroom environments for Indigenous students.

As a group, we will learn about the impetus for this student-partnered resource development, hear from Indigenous students about their experiences in STEM, and discuss how we, both individually and collectively, can foster more inclusive teaching and learning environments.

Facilitators :
– Frances Butterfield, BSc Student
– Ashley Welsh, Faculty Liaison (Science)
– Jessica Schaub, PhD Student in Oceanography
