Subaltern Voices, Indigenous Knowledge & Liberatory Pedagogy

The need to promote a multicentric focus on curriculum, teaching, and learning across all disciplines and programs at Kwantlen is echoed and supported by students, faculty members, the various Dean’s Offices and the communities that Kwantlen has historically served. In the Best Practice Models For Preparatory Practices (July 2004, p. 25), the authors urge the Kwantlen community to account for the Eurocentric focus of the curriculum and to become inclusive of gender, racialized, and ethnic issues and factors in developing their curriculum. The Strategic Framework 2.12 (August 2003, p.2) invites Kwantlen instructors to internationalize the curriculum and enhance the learning opportunities at Kwantlen.

One of the main goals of the Center for Global & Multicentric Education is to promote and facilitate dialogues between culturally, religiously, and racially diverse populations in B.C., Canada, and across the world. To achieve this goal, we need your help, cooperation, and involvement in this important work. Many of us at Kwantlen already practice some version of multicentric and global education in various faculties and departments. We want to learn from you. We invite and encourage efforts to envision newer and more innovative ways of preparing the diverse population of students at post-secondary institutions and at Kwantlen for their democratic participation in an ever-changing world, by viewing students as active global citizens/learners and by emphasizing dialogue, teamwork, and student-centred learning. 

We would like to invite you to share your knowledge and approaches to how you practice critical pedagogy by participating in and/or developing workshops on multicentric approaches to teaching/learning. Please submit your proposal below, or email your submission for workshop, curriculum development, and program implementation to: Dr. Amir Mirfakhraie (amir.mirfakhraie@kpu.ca) or, Dr. Wendy Royal (wendy.royal@kpu.ca).
