Decolonizing Professional Learning
Connecting Research, Policy and Pedagogy
In the summer of 2022, about 30 academics, school leaders and practitioners will be meeting in St. John's, NL for conversations and work about how we might set out to decolonize professional learning in education. This is the space where our pre-gathering conversations can be found. In addition, as the work continues, be sure to check back in as we continue to keep our finger on the pulse of this important work!
