Webinar: Indigenous Paradigms in Practice: Relationships, Story and Academic Integrity

September 29, 2020

Indigenous Academic Integrity Webinar - Keeta Gladue

Indigenous peoples are diverse distinct nations who carry the knowledge of millennia. As Indigenous peoples we know that knowledge must be authentic, validated, and shared through principled action. Join us as we discuss the paradigms and principles of academic integrity based on the values of our Communities. Providing the philosophical and the practical, this webinar is designed to explore Indigenous approaches to knowledge for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the post-secondary community.

Keeta Gladue Headshot (web size)Presenter bio: Keeta Gladue is a proud professional Indigenous nerd (IndigENerd), who believes in changing the world through pop culture references, humour and storytelling. When we explore the stories we tell, ask who told them and why, and look for the stories that remain untold, we better understand the world around us. Holding degrees in English, psychology and social work, Keeta is a current graduate student at the University of Calgary in the social work leadership program. She is the current Indigenous Student Program Advisor at Writing Symbols Lodge (The University of Calgary’s Indigenous student support centre) supporting diversity, equity and inclusion. A recent TEDx speaker, Keeta is committed to supporting intercultural engagement and understanding. As a passionate lover of learning she hopes to infect others with curiosity and wonder about how the world works, and even more, inspire them to imagine and work towards what it could be.
