Co-hosted by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Canadian Critical Pedagogy Association, this session will highlight innovative approaches to teaching and learning across a range of disciplines that engage decolonizing practices and Indigenizing approaches. The session aims to build capacity and promote sharing among scholars interested in putting reconciliation in to action. 
 
This afternoon session brings together a panel of presenters who will share pedagogical inspirations that are transforming classroom spaces in ways that give attention to Indigenous knowledge, perspectives, and learning approaches. An Indigenous pedagogy showcase will follow in KHE - Kerr East 119 at 16:15, featuring poster presentations with sample activities, resources, and with opportunities for one on one discussion. This session is open to all Congress attendees interested in navigating changes in their teaching and curriculum.
