SLC SSFs Get Some Northern Exposure

This past August 26-29, SLC Student Success Facilitators Jana Johnson and Sarah Durant had the unique opportunity to attend Nunavut’s Arctic College to present at the conference, Ilinniagqatigiinginaujarniq: Continuing to Learn Together.  

The conference was attended by more than 160 staff and faculty from across Canada. Jana and Sarah jointly presented on Recognizing Student Distress for Front Line Staff, Jana facilitated a discussion about Supporting Student Transition, and Sarah’s session, Fending Off Compassion Fatigue was the best attended session at the conference.
As well as sharing their expertise, Jana and Sarah bring back exciting insight to SLC on a variety of subjects, including: 

  • Inuit Quajimajatuqangit Principles [IQ], which loosely translates into Traditional Knowledge, where they came from, and how the Government of Nunavut is incorporating them  
  • Traditional Tattoos and the reclaiming of this almost lost art 
  • Music & Identity; working with Southern Perception of Inuit & the North 
  • Inuktut Acquisition, Promotion & Preservation
  • Elder Stories & Relocation Stories
