Indigenous Education Forum: Strengths-based approaches in Indigenous Education

Guest Presenter Associate Professor Marnee Shay will explore how problems and discourses of pathology have inadvertently impacted research policy and practice in Indigenous education. Marnee will share some examples from her research program where she has successfully applied strengths-based approaches and developed new understandings of old problems as a result.
