Event Description


Registration for this event is full. Please add your name to the waitlist.

How do we disrupt systemic colonial attitudes in the classroom while integrating Indigenous topics in a way that supports addressing knowledge gaps in a good way? 

Classrooms are diverse spaces, comprised of many different lived experiences and knowledges. When introducing Indigenous topics into curricula, building a safer space for Indigenous students often coincides with the need to bridge knowledge gaps alongside non-Indigenous students and instructors.  

Join CTLT Indigenous Initiatives facilitators Hannah Coderre, Educational Consultant, Curriculum and Student Development and Samantha Nock, Educational Consultant, Campus and Classroom Climate for an in-depth workshop exploring strategies and conversations on addressing the gap. 

This interactive virtual workshop will bring materials in from the What I Learned in Class Today Facilitation Guide and Toolkit, launched March 2024 and will include both guided group discussion and smaller breakout groups.  

Learning Outcomes:  

  • Develop an understanding of what a knowledge gap is and the impact they have in
    student learning and classroom environment 
  • Learn pedagogical tools to start addressing knowledge gaps in the classroom 


Before attending, please read Effects of Knowledge Gaps: Indigenous Tokenization and Expectations of Expertise and watch the WILICT Renewed Student Perspectives Film

Come prepared with your questions, experiences, and own expertise.
