Teaching Africa 2021 Teachers' Huddle

This "What Works and Whatnot" Conference takes place virtually on June 4th. As a confab initiative, it offers an opportunity for a reflective but relaxing get-together to discuss our pedagogy and practice, as well as our recent experiences as teachers of Africa or of Africa’s history.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
