Provost’s Grant awarded to Professor Sarah Buhler
College of Law professor, Sarah Buhler, along with Priscilla Settee (Department of English) and Nancy van Styvendale (Department of Native Studies), have been awarded the Provost’s Project Grant for Innovative Practice in Collaborative Teaching and Learning.
The group will receive $10,000 to carry out their project titled “Inside-Out on the Outside,” which will include bringing together university students; learners from Str8Up, a local gang prevention initiative of the John Howard Society; and mature students from Oskayak High School to create a teaching and learning experience that bridges historical and cultural divides between the groups and allows them to learn from and with each other.
This educational partnership will inform the development of a curriculum for an interdisciplinary course in Native Studies, Law and English. The process will also be shared through the production of a documentary film.
The Provosts Project Grant for Innovative Practice in Collaborative Teaching and Learning is an annual grant to be awarded to a University of Saskatchewan Department or non-departmentalized College, or collaboration between academic units, to undertake innovation in collaborative teaching and learning.
