Sense of place helps students contextualize their learning, engage in systems thinking, and connect more personally with course content. How can we adjust our curriculum and facilitation to help students develop a sense of place, when we can't be in a place together? In this webinar, we will explore several approaches for incorporating sense of place into distance learning, including taking virtual field trips, tapping into local knowledge, and using a community's shared experience as a springboard.
In this webinar, participants will:
- Differentiate between and define the relationship between "sense of place" and "place-based education"
- Articulate benefits of developing and leveraging students' sense of place
- Identify opportunities to incorporate sense of place into your coursework in a variety of contexts and approaches
Duration: 1 hour
Format: Presentations will take place through a Zoom Meeting screen-sharing session. The webinar will be recorded.
Accessing the Webinar: Instructions for joining the webinar will be email to participants the day before the event. Learn more about accessing the webinar.
