Event Description


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

Decolonization and Indigenization of teaching and learning is the responsibility of all members of the UBC community.  This panel will discuss different activities, strategies, and approaches from across both campuses, delving into questions such as: What are educators at UBC doing to decolonize and Indigenize curriculum and teaching practice, and what can be learned from their experiences? How do we work alongside one another, and share the load amongst Indigenous people and allies? How do we balance action with careful listening and reflection?
