Collaboration and community is at the heart of this approach.

This series revolves around a Learning Circle that includes Elders, Aboriginal students and VIU teaching faculty and support staff. Between each Learning Circle meeting, faculty are asked to apply suggestions to their own classroom teaching, critically reflect on that experience and share out at the next session.
