Add to CalendarTeaching and Learning Show 'n' Share - Indigenous Portfolios and Interdisciplinary Simulations 12/01/2016 07:30 AM12/01/2016 08:30 AMMM/DD/YYYYAmerica/Vancouver This semester, the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning is inviting faculty, staff and students to present on innovative and inspiring teaching and learning practices. During each session we will have two presentations and time for discussion. We would like to offer a relaxed, informal space for our community to come together, share their ideas, and be inspired. Telling our Story: Indigenous Portfolio Development Presented by: Janet Sinclair and Brian Walker, Aboriginal Bridging Program The Indigenous Portfolio process is grounded in the belief, expression, understanding and application of the relationship with one’s self, one’s family and community, and with the land.  In this session, Janet Sinclair and Brian Walker present on supporting Aboriginal Bridging students in the Learning Recognition Portfolio course (ILRP 100). Throughout this course, students discover who they are, where they come from and where they are going; they develop a way to tell their own story. This course facilitates change, invites growth and reframes challenges from the past, always looking for strengths, knowledge, and lived experience which can transfer to new learning situations. Portfolio development can be adapted to a variety of contexts, recognizing that adults already have knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities, and can result in establishing or confirming goals, and creating learning plans that lead to success in their educational journey.  Stimulating Simulations: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teamwork in Health care Presented by: Barbara Metcalf, Nursing, Faculty of Health and Human Services In this session, Barbara Metcalf, Faculty of Health and Human Services, outlines an innovative project that brings students from the Bachelor of Nursing Program, the Practical Nursing Program, and the Health Care Assistant Program together for an interdisciplinary learning experience. In teams, students from these three programs work through a variety of simulations aimed at deepening students’ understanding of communication strategies, conflict management skills, and teamwork. Barbara will describe the process of designing this interprofessional lab experience, explaining what students do, and commenting on the advantages and challenges of bringing together 108 students and 17 faculty for a day of active engagement.  Breakfast will be provided.
