Native American Pedagogies Conference

April 27th, 2018

Willard Reading Room

Zimmerman Library at the University of New Mexico

The Native American Pedagogies Conference will examine how faculty can best support and facilitate learning among Native American students. It will also focus on how Native American ways of knowing can influence pedagogy at UNM. The keynote address will be given by Dr. Lloyd Lee, the recipient of the 2016-2018 UNM Presidential Teaching Award, followed by three roundtable discussions: Indigenous Worldview in Higher Education, Teaching & Pedagogy, and Intersectionality (see descriptions below). Lunch is included. Faculty, staff and students are invited to join us in these important conversations.

This panel will focus on strategies for implementing culturally sustaining and revitalizing pedagogy, in both online and face-to-face classes, to support learning within a cohort of Native American students.  Additional topics will include the influences of historical trauma and the imbalance of western approaches in the college environment.

This panel will focus on the creation of Personal Theoretical Frameworks as an approach to academic study and research, and will address the importance of Critical Indigenous Studies as the foundation for Indigenous scholarship, theory and practice.

This panel will provide diverse perspectives on how faculty and staff in different capacities work with Native American students to help them succeed at UNM in regards to the classroom, research, and support.
