Abstract

As educators and scholars deeply engaged in the work of reconciliation, this session offers the opportunity for other educators and leaders to learn about the concept of reconciliatory pedagogy and how they might apply this transformative practice within their own scholarship (Brown, 2004; Poitras Pratt & Danyluk, 2017; Regan, 2010).
