Teaching Native Cases Summer Institute 2019
Teaching Native Cases Summer Institute
- Two day Summer Institute: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 18-19, 2019
- Optional Half Day Pre-Conference Field Trip: Monday June 17, 2019
The Summer Institute of the Enduring Legacies Native Cases Initiative will build on thirteen years of work developing teaching interdisciplinary case studies on significant issues in Indian Country and offering workshops for educators to network and learn how to use the cases in their classes and staff development.
Our interdisciplinary collection of cases covers a wide range of topics applicable to all academic fields. Problem-based learning, place-based learning and collaborative learning are the cornerstones of our approach. Cases promote student engagement and critical thinking in the context of complex and pressing real world issues. They are a terrific way of promoting diversity.
At this institute, we will practice working through cases collaboratively to learn how to facilitate case analysis and discussion. The Institute will feature a number of new cases on the cutting edge of current issues in Indian Country.
