Infusing Aboriginal Content and Perspectives

In this workshop participants will explore the BCTF Aboriginal Ways of Being and Knowing. We will begin to consider how these important teachings can be integrated into the curriculum, transform our student’s learning, our professional pedagogies, and create change as we work towards truth and reconciliation.
