The Teaching Strides podcast is a production of the Academic Development Centre and the journalism department at Mount Royal University. A space dedicated to highlighting the many and varied teaching philosophies at MRU, each episode features professors (and sometimes their students!) as we dig into their unique teaching practices.
In this first episode of the new season, we discuss how Otahpiaaki, a week in Calgary dedicated to Indigenous fashion and design, is driving the conversation about reconciliation and how Indigenous-led entrepreneurship created a space for creativity and passion. Spirit River Striped Wolf, an MRU policy studies student, and Patti Derbyshire, Associate Professor in Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation, are both co-founders of Otahpiaaki. They walk us through how deeply the project’s roots really go and what its success has meant for the communities involved.
