The project Indigenous Pedagogy in Teacher Education will have its first workshop online.

The workshop title is "Indigenizing education: Historical perspectives and present challenges in Sámi education", and it will discuss themes like colonization in different parts of Sápmi, curricular history and perspectives on ILO169 from three countries.
