Today’s ever changing world presents unique challenges that require new and innovative ways of being, knowing and seeing. Social, environmental and economic environments are challenging leaders and those in services to take an integrated approach to finding sustainable solutions. Training programs, in order to be effective, must engage learners in a way that opens up both theirs hearts and minds. At Kweykway we specialize in developing culturally sensitive curriculum and instruction designed to meet the unique needs of indigenous learners. Using a consultative process we work will work with the client to identify instructional goals and objectives and design an innovative curriculum that ensures an impactful experience that engages the various learning styles.

Denise is in the process of completing a Masters in Education focussing on Contemplative Inquiry and Approaches in Education and she holds a Provincial Instructors Diploma from VCC as well as has in depth training in group process. Denise not only uses sound pedagogical practices in the development and delivery of all programs but is dedicated to creating a safe learning environment in which leaners can develop a reflective practice, engage in constructive discourse, take risks and allow their most vulnerable selves to been seen and heard.  All of our programs are designed to be delivered in non-academically traditional and diverse settings, are rooted in experiential and embodied practices and give consideration to social and moral ethics.
