Workshop and public lecture to explore topic of Two-Eyed Seeing

Wednesday, January 9, 2019

The Mount’s Food Action Research Centre (FoodARC) partnered with Atlantic Indigenous Mentorship Network to host Elder Albert Marshall and Dr. Cheryl Bartlett for the Mount Saint Vincent University President’s Visiting Lecture Series on Teaching and Learning.

A workshop and public lecture were held at the Mount on January 9, 2019, and examined how we as administrators, students, and faculty members appreciate and embed the contributions of Indigenous ways of knowing within our programs and institutions. The events focused on the topic of Two-Eyed Seeing, developed by Elders Albert and Murdena Marshall, which refers to learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing, and from the other eye with the strengths of Western knowledges and ways of knowing, and learning to use both these eyes together for the benefit of all.

Together with Elder Albert Marshall, Dr. Cheryl Bartlett and other Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Knowledge Holders, participants had the opportunity to:
• Begin a co-learning journey of their own to contribute to Reconciliation in Action
• Contribute to an understanding of how we as administrators, students, and faculty members can value and embed the contributions of indigenous ways of knowing within our own programs and institutions
• Build capacity to deconstruct and address social inequities that are both perpetuated by and ingrained in our education systems
• Explore opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration and intersectoral leadership to support our teaching and learning
