*Decolonizing Teaching and Instruction - Kevin Lamoureux - FEATURED PRESENTER

Decolonization is a word that is often misunderstood. Scholars and activists around the world have studied, debated and fought for decolonization while the word itself often remains misunderstood, feared and resented. This session will seek to counter that response. Rather than representing actions to be feared, decolonization can be an invitation for all educators to be a part of contributing to a better Canada for all Canadians. This session will offer one example of what decolonized instruction might look like.
