So many feelings! Indigenous information literacy and relationships
Librarian and Assistant Professor Jessie Loyer has committed her research efforts to Indigenous information literacy. From travelling the country to host talks on her findings, Loyer has added a layer of consideration to her focus that questions how emotional competency is taught as part of information literacy instruction since research is more than a mental exercise, especially when it’s traumatic.
Join this first edition of the 2018-19 Library Scholarship Speaker Series where Loyer will work to ground this idea with the help of the Cree law of wâhkôhtowin, which directs us to know our relationships and act in reciprocal ways. We'll discuss how this can inform practical activities in classrooms and beyond.
Library Scholarship Speaker Series
