The Canadian Assessment for Learning Network is committed to supporting the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action in relation to education (#62 and #63). As a Pan-Canadian organization dedicated to the implementation of assessment for learning, we recognize the importance of working towards reconciliation, decolonization, and Indigenization in all aspects of education. We recognize that this learning journey is ongoing and rooted in relationship, reciprocity, and respect. We believe we have a responsibility to both continue our own learning and development while providing opportunities to share and elevate the voices of Indigenous educators, scholars, and knowledge keepers.

CAfLN is a Pan-Canadian non-profit network dedicated to nurturing and sustaining Assessment for Learning (AfL) as a means to maximize student learning in educational institutions across Canada.

CAfLN connects educators, administrators, policy-makers and researchers dedicated to establishing and sustaining high quality AfL in elementary, secondary and tertiary education.

Sara Leah Hindy is a Mi’kmaw mother, analyst, educator and lifelong learner from Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). Sara Leah holds two degrees from Memorial University, a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education, and is currently working on her Master of Education.

Through community-based work, Sara Leah has supported land-based learning, developed education partnerships, created Indigenous teaching resources and facilitated knowledge mobilization. Her current work focuses on providing Indigenous cultural awareness and a decolonized, Indigenized lens in research. Her commitment to education is deeply rooted in her love for her two sons, Oliver and Reid, who inspire, motivate and remind her daily of the importance of Indigenous education for all students. In Indigenous Ways of Assessing, Sara Leah will share personal experiences and insights on Indigenous education as it relates to educational policy, curricula and practices.
