De-Colonizing Place-Based Education by Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education

Feb 24, 2021
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

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 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 Judy Dow of Gedakina, Marie Vea of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont, Emily Hoyler of the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education and Aimee Arandia Ă˜stensen of Shelburne Farms.

This webinar is provided at no cost to participants through a collaboration between the UVM Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education & Shelburne Farms.
