Webinar #3: February 23, 2011, 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. EST
Webinar Topic: “Two-Eyed Seeing: Building Cultural Bridges for Inclusive Science Education”
Presenter: Annamarie Hatcher
Two-Eyed Seeing, from a Mi’kmaq Elder named Albert Marshall, is an expression that refers to the importance of looking at the world through two sets of eyes: those of Western sciences, and those of Indigenous sciences. In her presentation, Annamarie Hatcher will describe the challenges for marginalized students in the school science classroom, which is dominated by the Western eye. She will provide some ideas for teachers to help them bridge the cultural gap between these two worldviews, through some hands-on activities.
