Panel Discussion for School Library Day


On Wednesday, October 24, the iSchool presents its next event in the 2012-13 Colloquium Series, a panel discussion as part of School Library Day in British Columbia.


“Engaging Youth with Indigenous Materials in Libraries and Classrooms” will be held on Wednesday, October 24, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Dodson Room, in the Irving K. Barker Learning Centre at UBC. This event is open to the public, and will address challenges facing Indigenous and non-Indigenous librarians, educators and parents when drawing upon materials representing Indigenous peoples and cultures.  They will offer insights about such issues as cultural appropriation, stereotypes, addressing colonialism and what to do with dated resources. This session is ideal for teacher candidates, classroom teachers, teacher-librarians, youth librarians and parents.


Panelists are Debra Martel, Associate Director of UBC’s First Nations House of Learning, Jan Hare, Associate Professor in the UBC Department of Language and Literacy Education, and Allison Taylor-McBryde, Adjunct Professor, School of Library, Archival and Information Studies. Convenor for the panel is Jo-Anne Naslund of the UBC Education Library, and moderator is Lisa P. Nathan, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the First Nations Curriculum Concentration at the UBC iSchool.
