Wiki Version:
<p>The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) initiated a process to expose the treatment of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Post-secondary institutions are witnessing a call for teaching practices that demonstrate respect for and appreciation of Indigenous worldviews and approaches to learning. It is within this context that libraries must explore their colonial foundations, including questioning the models of information seeking and resource selection that have become standard practice in our classrooms. This presentation will explore the preliminary results of a learning program for Queen's librarians to discuss decolonizing the information literacy curriculum. We will share preliminary results of our learning program including how we define decolonization in relation to information literacy and the key challenges in changing our teaching practice. This presentation will include one-shot and term-length teaching examples outlining how the land ownership-centric biases of traditional cartographic materials are a great starting point for class discussions working towards decolonizing information literacy approaches. Session attendees will have an opportunity to discuss their own experiences decolonizing information literacy at their institutions and to discuss how libraries are engaging Indigenous communities.</p>
