Event Date & Time

Event Description

This is an in-person event.

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 and reading two articles (approximately 30 minutes of pre-work). Within the synchronous portion of the workshop we will be screening the What I Learned In Class Today Renewed Faculty Perspectives Video, followed by a 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


  • Faculty, TAs, Instructors, members of teaching and learning community at UBC


  • Hannah Coderre – Educational Consultant, CTLT Indigenous Initiatives
