Dr. Lisa Korteweg, Associate Professor, has been appointed as an external advisor on a national “Editorial Circle” panel for the Federal government’s new Indigenous Learning series.
The Indigenous Learning Series is being created to ensure that public servants have awareness and capacity to develop and implement public policies, programs, and services relevant to and reflective of Indigenous realities. It will include events, videos, facilitated online courses, workshops, armchair discussions, case studies, learning resources, and job aids for all levels of the public service.
As a member of the Editorial Circle, Dr. Korteweg will advise the Indigenous learning series' policy makers, curriculum designers, and program facilitators.
"I am very honoured to have been appointed to this national panel at this critical time of responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action, and ensuring reconciliation is an educational and institutional priority of the Federal government," says Dr. Korteweg.
The series is being developed in partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
