In this workshop Gillian Judson (imaginED) and Heidi Wood (NOIIE) introduce a new resource for imaginative, Place-centered and Indigenous Education. Walking Forward: Learning from Place interweaves First People’s Principles of Learning (FPPL), Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE), and teacher inquiry. This resource applies an Indigenous lens to The Walking Curriculum (TWC), reframing the first 30 walks in TWC in ways that connect to the nine FPPL.
Dr. Gillian Judson is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. She teaches in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction programs. Her scholarship looks at imagination’s role in leadership and learning (K-post-secondary). Heidi Wood is an Indigenous Education Curriculum Coordinator with the Delta School District #37 and a long time participant with the Network of Inquiry and Indigenous Education. As an educator with mixed First Nations and European ancestry, it is her goal to support teachers with a deeper understanding of Indigenous perspectives in the BC curriculum. She strives to model the First Peoples Principles of Learning in her work as she engages in experiential learning for all.
