Indigenous Protocol: Building Awareness Toward Engagement with Understanding | WEDNESDAY, SEPT 2 | 9AM - 10:30AM | Room 245
There has been a growing interest over the last number of years by faculty, staff, students and researchers at Emily Carr on the subject of Indigenous protocols. Among the many protocols that exist, we have research and teaching protocols, protocols for social and ceremonial gatherings, protocols that acknowledge and honour the land and its sovereign nations, protocols for personal introductions and for addressing elders, invitation protocols and gift and honorarium protocols among many others. This is a broad and multifaceted topic that we can only just begin to address in this brief session. The workshop will shed light on some of the principles and values of Indigenous protocols through examples and anecdotes presented by our panel, while also conveying the complexity and diversity of understandings and beliefs carried by Indigenous individuals and nations. In the end these protocols or the way we do things all adhere to a fundamental principle and that is, the cultivation of respectful relations.

Students in Dialogue w/ Faculty : What does it mean to be student centered? | THURSDAY, SEPT 3 | 2:15PM-3:45PM | ROOM 291
The first principle of re-location and transformation for Emily Carr is "Students at the Centre". Join members of the Emily Carr Students' Union in a dialogue about what it's like being a student at Emily Carr and help the elected student representatives develop strategies to create and implement a student-centred community. The campus experience is very different for staff and faculty than it is for students and we want to talk about some of those differences such as; how faculty want to teach and the feedback they are getting from students as well as other points of division that staff and faculty may be encountering. The workshop will be facilitated by Joakim Zatko, University Relations Coordinator for the Emily Carr Students' Union, along with Salguero Kiernan, Chelsea Yuill, and Gloria Han.
