ItemQueer identities: part two: integrating queer knowledge(2020) Berikoff, AhnaIn part two of Queer Identities, Parker, I and Aidan provide important insights and suggestions to integrate Queer knowledge into Child and Youth Care curriculum and how instructors can demonstrate understanding, knowledge and allyship. ItemIntroduction to Pass the mic(2020) Berikoff, AhnaPass the Mic is a podcast research project involving MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Child and Youth Care students, graduates and practitioners in the field. Participants take up the mic as a forum for expression touching on salient aspects of identity and experience in socio-cultural and institutional contexts. The sharers of knowledge are storytellers, poets, artists and thinkers. Individuals discuss their variant experiences with a focal point on identity - complex identities that are not siloed in any one location but in motion and intersecting across locations and experiences. The podcast conversations and readings are thought provoking, critical and at times emotional, for example, topics range from experiences of racism, sexism, ableism, gender bias, religious bias, Islamophobia, transphobia, body-shaming, mental health and other points of social inequity. Individuals easily disrupt stereotypes and generate ideas for greater social equity, especially in classrooms, work contexts and life-spaces. Discussions take place around kitchen tables, living room spaces and office spaces. So stay tuned as the episodes will continue to emerge in numbers and topics. ItemNewcomer experiences: part two(2020) Berikoff, AhnaIn part two of Newcomer Experiences, Pria, Lance and Abby talk about what it means to adapt to a different educational environment in Canada. They discuss the importance of friendships and open conversations as a means of integrating more successfully at MacEwan’s Child and Youth Care program.
