JUMP! Experiential Educator training

JUMP!’s Experiential Education training (EEt) program is a professional development workshop. It seeks to benefit educators by providing tools to integrate experiential education into their classrooms, with links to the new BC curriculum. Emphasis is placed upon applying the tenets of experiential education to inspire a pursuit of lifelong learning among students. The EEt program uses a hands-on approach to introduce participants to the theory and philosophy of experiential education.  

The EET Program focuses on finding answers to the following questions: 
What is experiential education? (theory and philosophy)
How can it enhance in and outside of classrooms as part of the new BC curriculum? 
How can we use experiential education successfully?

**The JUMP! Foundation has over ten years of experience with global programming in over 20 countries and full-time JUMP! offices in Thailand, China and Australia. The JUMP! Canada Hub opened in January 2017.
