Event Description

Please click “Register Now” to register for this event. This event will be online on Blackboard Collaborate. This session is also offered on July 6 and August 7

In this interactive session, participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of place-based experiential learning through a mix of content delivery, guided reflection, and experiential techniques that can be applied across diverse disciplines. Of particular importance in this session are connections to Indigenous relations and place-based knowledge, as the session will guide learners to engage with Indigenous histories of the lands where they reside. Participants will also have an opportunity to collaborate with peers in small breakout groups to brainstorm viable place-based experiential activities for specific courses or disciplines.
