De-Colonizing Place-Based Education - online workshop
Engage with us to question and unsettle our notions of place, colonization, and identity together as we strive to decolonize our teaching practices. How do we experience and perpetuate colonization in our classrooms? What is the nature of our relationship to place as individuals and communities? Together we’ll tease apart, examine and begin to reconstruct what place-based education is and can be. This 1.5 hour workshop is designed for K-12 educators with some familiarity with place-based education.
Your co-facilitators for this adventure into purpose and pathway will be Aimee Arandia Østensen, our professional learning facilitator, Judy Dow of Gedakina, Marie Vea of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont, and Emily Hoyler of the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education.
