Dr. Jean-Paul Restoule of the Univerisity of Victoria and Dr. Angela Nardozi of Listen & Learn are proud to partner to bring you the fourth installment of the Kikinoo’amaagoowin Webinar Series: Teaching Mathematics In Relationship with Indigenous Ways of Knowing.
Teachers across (what we now refer to as) Canada are being encouraged to incorporate Indigenous ways of knowing into every subject area. What does this look like in the mathematics classroom?
In this webinar, Nikki Lineham (a non-Indigenous educator living in Lekwungen territory) will share her experience bringing wholistic, collaboartive pedagogies based in Indigenous ways of knowing into her math teaching with a focus on spatial and visual learning. She will share concrete examples of lessons and pedagogies which can be geared towards all students. Nikki will also speak to her belief that this work must be personal and relevant to students, their communities, and the land that they are living and learning on.
Join Jean-Paul and Angela for this FREE 1-hour webinar on Thursday, February 28th, at 4:00pm PDT and 7:00pm EST or sign up to receive the recording the next day. We look forward to meeting you!
Special Guest Bio
Nikki Lineham is a non-Indigenous math teacher in Lekwungen territory (Victoria, BC) who has been mentoring math teachers for over 12 years. Her passion stems from watching students, teachers and parents learn to understand math conceptually and the resulting growth in confidence, achievement and love for math. Nikki is currently in the first cohort of educators enrolled in the post-graduate certificate in ethnomathemtics at the University of Hawaii. This experience has fueled a new passion for culturally sustaining math teaching. It has also given her more tools to support teachers in understanding how Indigenous perspectives and ways of knowing can be incorporated into teaching as a way to support all learners.
