This interactive workshop introduces the theoretical and practical dimensions of Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE). After a brief introduction to core concepts indoors, Kelsey and Gillian will take participants outdoors and invite them to engage in imagination-focused practices. Kelsey will share the ways in which IEE captures the hearts and minds of her intermediate learners. Participants will practice activities from A Walking Curriculum and explore the ways in which the practices inspire interdisciplinary learning. *Dress for the weather!
Participants should dress for the weather! We will go outside in the rain!
