Location: Virtual event
On Thursday, February 11, beginning at 11:00 am Eastern, 12:00 noon Atlantic, join us for the February Maple League Hosts: Embracing the Spirit of Ubuntu: Implications for Transforming Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.
Join Dr. Joy Mighty to discuss how the African philosophy of Ubuntu helps us to understand and embrace our common humanity. At the same time, Ubuntu challenges us to reimagine our post-secondary institutions as vehicles for achieving equity, diversity and inclusion in a fractured world. In particular, we will discuss the implications of adopting Ubuntu as a means of transforming our curricula, teaching methodologies and learning environments so that all students, regardless of their social identity, may have an equal chance to learn and be academically successful.
