On Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 4PM (PST), Dr. Gillian Judson will be kicking off this virtual workshop series. Dr. Gillian Judson will be sharing some of her work around engaging students with their natural and cultural contexts, which is a central aim of Imaginative Ecological Education, or IEE.
Through cross-curricular practices like The Walking Curriculum (Judson, 2018), IEE can help develop students’ sense of Place and leave them feeling connected in different ways with the contexts in which they live and learn.
This webinar will introduce learning principles and practical Place-based teaching strategies that can help students engage with the mystery and wonder of the world around them as they meet curricular objectives.
