First Nations Capacity Building

To move forward in all aspects of community and organizational effectiveness (socially, economically, environmentally and spiritually), individuals and organizations must obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment and other resources needed to do their jobs competently or to a greater capacity. Too much is at stake for individuals to be held back due to a lack of skills, knowledge and other resources.

Cascade Journal of Knowledge (cjok.org)

The Cascade Journal of Knowledge enhances the practice of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) through a rigorous double-blind peer-review process. The journal achieves this through a unique and innovative format: scholars submit a 3 – 8-minute screencast presentation of an academic topic that is peer-reviewed for selection for publication as a Knowledge Module. The peer-review system is an important aspect of the publication process of a Knowledge Module: it ensures the quality of the Knowledge Module’s content and pedagogy; enables scholars to improve their presentations; and aids editors in making a publication decision. Following the review process, the publication of Knowledge Modules establishes scholars as pedagogical experts in their field. Moreover, tenure and promotion committees can assess the scholarship of teaching and learning through the published knowledge Modules. Finally, the Knowledge Modules connects students to a vetted, credible information source for assignments and research.
