Hey G! An Examination of how English Language Learning Visible Minority High School Youths Experience the intersection of race and Second Language Learning (Carène Pierre René)

 This study seeks to explore how English language learning (ELL) visible minority youth from immigrant families living in Ottawa, experience the intersections of ‘race’ and second language learning in after school youth programs. Despite the fact that race is a socially constructed notion which has subsequently become discredited as having no biological basis, the concept continues to impact youths’ linguistic identities. Within the Canadian context, few programs have been established to support ELL visible minority students to address race issues. As a result, there is a need for a bridge between the academic situation and the after school one.

This interactive session will enable graduate students to think about the importance of curating an academic digital presence and offer them time to start building a website in a supportive community of colleagues. Students will explore the digital academic presence of other scholars as a way to think about what their own presence might include and how it could be structured.

Gérontologie narrative numérique : histoires au pays des Premières Nations (Béatrice Crettenand Pecorini, M.A.)

Les ainés Canadiens, particulièrement ceux issus des communautés Autochtones, sont une source importante bien qu’informelle d’apprentissage pour la communauté. Ce projet vise à développer une conception de la gérontologie narrative numérique pour agir positivement et simultanément sur l’éducation et la santé, qui demeurent des enjeux sociaux d’importance, afin d’apporter une contribution au développement de l’apprentissage et du bien-être des Premières Nations. Nous visons en premier lieu la personne en tant qu’individu, mais le développement de ce projet pourrait être étendu à la communauté en tant qu’auditeur des « histoires de vie ».

Public Speaking Fundamentals (Tylor Burrows, PhD Candidate)

Presentation skills are valuable for educators and researchers, but novice presenters may find public speaking to be a challenge, and may not be sure how to improve beyond more ‘practice’.

This practical presentation aims to support the Student Speaker Series by introducing some some fundamentals of public speaking: voice, non-verbal communication, confidence, and rapport.  These fundamentals will be introduced with tips and exercises, and the audience will be engaged using a variety of activities during the presentation.

The presenter has ~15 years of educational and academic public speaking experience, and has taught speaking skills in a variety of contexts.

The Beauty in My Hair (Annette Jubril, PhD Student)

Through this presentation, I will highlight my experiences with my natural hair and conceptions of beauty so as to inspire a reflexive awareness of socialization. By reflecting on my experiences, I have become more cognizant of the way my hair has socialized me into understanding what is natural and beautiful—therefore, influencing the way I define both concepts and how that understanding reflects in the feelings I have towards my hair. My narrative will showcase the heightened challenges of being a black woman with naturally curly hair surrounded by what I understood as a singular vision of beauty.
