    INDIGENOUS RESEARCH WORKSHOP SERIES

    This workshop series is created to support skill, knowledge and tool development for Indigenous researchers (students, teachers and community practitioners) and allied settlers conducting research in Indigenous contexts and in alignment with the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    Are you considering doing program evaluation, needs identification, or inquiring into a topic of interest in Indigenous contexts or within Indigenous communities? Do you wish you could learn more about Indigenous research? These sessions will offer researchers, community workers and educators invaluable information to inform research projects. They offer lived experience, rich dialogue and a safe space to explore and learn together and as a result you will become a more ethical and conscious re-searcher.

    In this workshop series, participants will explore some of the following questions:

  • What are the challenges and limitations of euro-western theories and methodologies?
  • What is an Indigenous research paradigm?
  • What does ethical research mean in an Indigenous context?
  • What considerations are important in forming partnerships?
  • What are Indigenous research methodologies?
  • How to engage with community in meaningful ways?

    Participants will learn about research done by Indigenous peoples and will have the opportunity to bring their learning needs into the workshops. This series will generate collaborative learning using mixed methods approaches of circle work, ceremony, instruction, dialogue and sharing of research projects.
