Topic:The panel presentation will highlight perspectives that seek to uncover the voices that are often lost within a grand narrative of history. These researchers will highlight indigenous perspectives and the interesting traces of women and children that enrich our understanding of the past. This promises to introduce educators to the stories and considerations that make the Program of Studies come alive.
Summary:This session will highlight the cutting edge perspectives and arguments that are being represented in our own University of Lethbridge. Within the Faculty of Arts and Science, many leading professors work to question and redefine what we know andhow we know. This session will reveal work that is being done in the humanities and the sciences that can support the work of the classroom teacher. Each presentation has been chosen for its relevance to the Alberta Program of Study. The talks will be short in duration with a panel discussion at the conclusion which will take on a Q and A format.
