We are reaching out to you today to invite you and your colleagues to join us for our InSTEM Kikandaaswiwin Mookiisin STEAM Teacher Training for Indigenous Land Based STEM education.
Now more than ever, the topic of Land Based Education is on the minds of not only Indigenous people and communities, but Canadians in general, and especially educators who have had to explore new ways to engage students in the classroom, with the goal of recognition and integration of Indigenous Land Based Education as a critical element within the Canadian education system.
Actua and Canadore recognizes that our role in facilitating these teacher training opportunities represents a small contribution to the incredible daily work that happens through the teachers, leadership, education authorities and community members who work towards improving the educational experiences and outcomes for Indigenous youth. For our part, Actua welcomes the opportunity to continue to support the 35,000 Indigenous youth in 200 communities we engage annually through our InSTEM program. Our goal continues to be advocates and contributors to the much-needed systemic change required to improve the educational experience for Indigenous youth.
Attached you will find the facilitators training poster, along with the training overview that will direct you to the registration site.
Chi-Meegwetch to all, and we look forward to ongoing conversations and opportunities to engage and work with each of you and the communities you represent.
Director-National InSTEM Program
