The final Edible Education Community of Practice meeting of the 2021/2022 school year will be held on Tuesday, May 24 3-4 PST / 6-7 EST! If you are a teacher who wants to integrate First People’s Principles of Learning into your outdoor education, this will be a wonderful opportunity to learn more about ready-to-use resources.
Dr. Gillian Judson (imaginED) and Megan Sandham will introduce a new resource for imaginative, Place-centered and Indigenous Education, called “Walking Forward: Learning from Place”. This resource applies an Indigenous lens to The Walking Curriculum (TWC), reframing the first 30 walks in TWC in ways that connect to the nine First People’s Principles of Learning.
We will be hearing from Dr. Gillian Judson (pictured below), who is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. Her scholarship looks at imagination’s role in leadership and (eco)learning (K – Post-secondary).
We will also be learning from Megan Sandham, who is a Primary Learning Coordinator in the Delta School District and a Graduate Student in Imaginative Education. She is an all-weather walker and an avid picture book buyer.
Please note that the presentations will be in English only. The recording will be available with French subtitles shortly after the meeting.Register for the event
