Research at the Conference
In the morning sessions, participants can choose to participate in a research project. Choosing from one of four sessions, participants will help researchers understand what strategies educators are utilizing in the classroom that incorporate Indigenous knowledges, as well as what has enabled or disabled educators from incorporating these knowledges and strategies into their classroom.
