Relationships for Learning
This series of videos has captured the thinking and work that was shared with educators, Elders, and community partners from 44 different school boards who are actively involved in facilitating collaborative inquiries to support all students with a focus on Indigenous learners. The workshops offered this Fall were designed to support the needs of the group that were identified through the work of Dr. Susan Dion and her research team. The sessions were taped to provide others with an opportunity to learn from those who have been involved in Indigenous Focused Collaborative Inquiries.
Using Documentation to Monitor your Indigenous Focused Collaborative Inquiry
This video stresses the importance of triangulating multiple sources to ensure accurate interpretation and analysis of a team's inquiry while deepening our understanding about processes of documenting, collecting evidence, using data and monitoring within an Indigenous research framework. A description of both Western and Indigenous paradigms is provided along with recognition that tensions exist within an Indigenous-Focused Collaborative Inquiry when measuring impact and student outcomes due to historical misuse of data and the absence of Indigenous voice in research. Examples of what researching “in a good way” might look like in a collaborative inquiry are provided.
