When: June 18-22
Conference Description: Learning is a social experience, and the most memorable learning happens when we are fully engaged mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
This conference applies the philosophies of John Dewey and Maxine Greene, both leading voices in experiential education, and highlights eleven core guiding principles of experiential, reflective teaching and learning. We will read together, write together and ask courageous questions about our practice and professional challenges. Participants will re-imagine their own connections to learner-centered, place-based teaching.
Course Facilitator: Dr. Jan Buley has practiced in reflective practice for 25 years, and has facilitated this course in Georgia for more than a decade. Jan shares her love for literacy and drama education with teacher candidates within Memorial University’s Faculty of Education in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. Jan believes that curiosity and an ability to ‘imagine things as other’ are necessary in all teaching and learning communities.
