Education Forum: The Value of Knowledge Transfer - Part 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This year the Forum takes place on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish People. We invite Indigenous participants from Canada and abroad, including  Maori, Navajo and Inuit representatives to discuss their perspectives on digital technologies in relation to their knowledge heritage, particularly based on personal and communal experience. In addition to traditional knowledge transfer, the Forum will open discussions on the impact of global and local paradigm shifts and blurred boundaries in our digital age, and how they may affect the transmission of knowledge across generations. Participants might address modes of knowledge transfer, sites of resistance, forms of cross-cultural collaboration, and means of disruption of settler-colonial relations. In the context of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, what strategies and tactics for knowledge transfer are currently shared, or can be shared in the future? What opportunities for cross-cultural, inter-generational collaboration exist?

Welcome by the First Nation Elder, Ian Clothier of ISEA International 
and Thecla Schiphorst, ISEA2015 Symposium Director.
