Stop Talking. Indigenous Ways of Teaching and Learning and Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education
This book describes a unique higher education project that broke some difficult silences between academic and Alaaka Native communities by introducing a small group of non-Native faculty members to traditional Native ways of teaching and learning. It presents a model for a Native-designed and run faculty development intensive, strategies for applying indigenous pedagogies in western learning environments, reflection on education by Alaska Native Elders, and reports from participants on what they learned and what they tried in their classrooms. It is intended to stimulate discussion and reflection about best practices in higher education.
