The workshop being offered focuses on encouraging educators to be mindful of the FPPL when planning and organizing projects outdoors. This is more than pinning principles to projects. It is about developing key understandings regarding the principles of learning and recognizing land as teacher. Looking at various projects (some of them being fabulous flops), the idea is to become more resourceful and purposeful when being outdoors. Over the span of 90 minutes, participants will be introduced to the topic and have the opportunity to connect with peers. As well, they may recognize themselves in the various examples to be shared, as these examples serve to highlight a starting point, a way to move forward, and an opportunity to create a community (school or local) project that day.
L’atelier propose des façons d’encourager les enseignant/e/s à garder en tête les principes d’apprentissage des Peuples Autochtones lorsque vient le temps d’enseigner et de faire des projets à l’extérieur. Allons plus loin que les associations principes-projets! Le but est de développer une meilleure compréhension des principes et de la place du territoire, de la terre, comme source de savoirs et d’enseignements. Divers projets et conseils seront abordés et offerts comme ressources.
