Pedagogy

Decolonized & Engaged Pedagogy

Decolonization and engaged pedagogy aims to transform consciousness through a paradigm shift from a culture of denial towards making space for Indigenous political philosophies, ways of knowing, being and doing.

Indigenous Pedagogy

Indigenous pedagogy is inclusive, holistic and reflective of Indigenous ways of teaching and learning. The talking Circle is utilized as pedagogy to create a safe space, where each one is equal and each one belongs. Participants in a Talking Circle learn to listen and respect others, as well as taking turns sharing their thoughts, ideas, emotions and experiences. Indigenous pedagogy engages teaching/learning practices that connect the head, heart, and spirit to “transform people in powerful ways that may not be fully understood on a rational level alone” (Paulette Regan, 2010, p. 205). The transformation is to move beyond the mere description and theorizing about the impacts of colonization, towards the experience and transformation of understanding towards empathy and social action.
