This site is an invitation to law professors across Canada to gather together ideas about resources and pedagogies to support recommendation #28 of the TRC Calls to Action: the call for us to rethink both what and how we teach in our schools.

In the twitter sphere, the hashtag #ReconciliationSyllabus is one invitation for sharing.  We imagine this wordpress site as one of several spots for gathering some of those sharing in an accessible spot.  We certainly need many spaces for conversation about resources, strategies, and possibilities.  Especially in these early days, what might be required of us is courage, imagination, and vulnerability in both gathering and in sharing. What might be required are examples of both success and failure in this endeavour, as we begin to make Recommendation #28 take shape in the world.  Hopefully, this (non-institutionally grounded) site can be a decentralized site for gathering things from across the country (and a site for stimulating thought!)  Leave a comment if you want to be added as a contributor!
