Educator Workshop

Check back in late December for 2019 registration and scholarship information!


Join Vermont Folklife Center and Shelburne Farms for a deep dive into tools and techniques for digital storytelling to engage students and communities in sustainability.  Together we’ll explore interview techniques, storytelling and personal narratives as a way to reach sustainability goals in both schools and communities.  

Whether your focus is pedagogical - project and place based learning - or content driven - farm to school or climate change - we’ll orient learning around the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The SDGs offer a way to connect meaningful place-based learning to global issues.  Using digital storytelling techniques and tools you and your students have the power to make positive change in schools and communities.   We’ll gather at Shelburne Farms in a retreat like setting to practice skills, share stories, and develop action plans for implementation.  Join us!

This residential program is presented by Shelburne Farms and Vermont Folklife Center.
