Educator Toolkit

The educator toolkit is an introductory course to diversity, equity, inclusion, and decolonization in the classroom. This program offers big concepts in bite size chunks, while supporting the development of an educators knowledge and skills that can be used in the classroom setting.

The four key modules of the program include:
  • Content in the Classroom
  • Language
  • Use Voice
  • Anti-Oppressive Practices


As an educator, it is critical to better understand our perspective and what narrative we are portraying in our classroom. Throughout this program, you will be encouraged to reflect on your own practice and plan for a more equitable future.
