This year seems to be the year for virtual conferences, online professional development, and webinars. In October I’ll be participating and presenting at a number of virtual conferences including:
- I will be presenting as part of the Canadian Research and Knowledge Network (CRKN) virtual conference. My presentation, ” Community Based Access: Preserving and Sharing Indigenous Archival Materials” will be on October 13th and is part of the access and preservation week. The CRKN conference is completely virtual and free this year.
- I’m super happy that I get to participate in TESS again this year. This is a fantastic conference and learning opportunity organized by eCampus Ontario. I’m going to be talking about empathy and teaching about the history of Residential Schools in virtual settings. TESS is free and runs from October 20th to 21st.
- Lastly, Elizabeth Edgar-Webkamigad and I will be presenting “Reclaiming Shingwauk: Cross-Cultural Learning and Programming” as part of the Ontario Museum Association Annual Conference on October 29, 2020.
