Event Title

Teaching and Research at Northwest Indian College from a Student Perspective

Presentation Abstract

At Northwest Indian College place-based learning and relevant research are used to engage and retain Native students. In the classroom, sense of place is often derived from the Salish Sea. This creates a classroom experience that is connected to a real place that students have deep connection to. This also applies to students who are from different regions, students learn how they can use these classroom and research experiences in their own communities after graduation. In the Salish Sea Research Center students engage in research that directly relates to the wellbeing of Indigenous nations. The result of placed-based pedagogy and engagement in compelling research will be presented from a student perspective.
