Top 5 Tips

1. Change your perspective by interrogating deficit perspectives and acknowledging the roles of the power and identity in learning spaces.

2. Interrogate curriculum by asking questions such as: Whose knowledge is represented? Whose knowledge is missing? Who benefits from this knowledge?

3. Invite learners' identities into our spaces.

4. Invite learners' way of knowing into our spaces and familiarize yourself with alternative ways of knowing in your discipline.

5. Establish norms for participation and foreground these norms at each convening of the learning community.
