Event Description


This event is part of the 2023 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 2–9, 2023.

Through the What I Learned In Class Today project, participants will learn how to intentionally approach Indigenous content and topics in the classroom and will learn how this can make a supportive and positive learning experience for all students.

This workshop requires participants to engage with asynchronous materials prior to the workshop, including watching the Renewed Student Perspectives Film: Educational Experiences and Institutional Responses, reading an article (approximately 30 minutes of pre-work), and completing a Padlet. Within the synchronous portion of the workshop we will be screening the What I Learned In Class Today Renewed Faculty Perspectives Video, followed by activities and discussion.

Learning Outcomes: This session will help participants to start critically engaging and reflecting on the following:

  • How classroom climate impacts student experiences
  • Appropriate engagement with Indigenous students within and beyond the classroom
  • Ways to navigate Indigenous topics with care in the classroom



  • Erin Yun, Educational Consultant, CTLT Indigenous Initiatives
  • Hannah Coderre, Educational Consultant, CTLT Indigenous Initiatives
