Decolonization, Indigenization and Reconciliation CoP 

Ontario Tech University’s Teaching and Learning Centre has organized a community of practice (CoP) related to Indigenization and decolonization, and you are invited as a member of the Durham College community!    

The broad goals of the CoP are to:  

  • Generate ideas, seek feedback, and share stories about Indigenizing and decolonizing content, instructional approaches, and interactions;  
  • Identify, develop, or experiment with strategies and resources that support Indigenous students and/or the inclusion of Indigenous pedagogies and content for all students;   
  • And most importantly, to develop a collaborative, supportive, and flexible group interested in Indigenization and decolonization.  

The CoP meets monthly – on various days and times – to share learning with guest speakers, members of the community that are doing the work of Indigenization and decolonization, and each other. 

If you are interested in joining, please visit:
