Land-Based Learning Symposium
Ae18-Logo.png

ABOUT 

In Canada, Land-based learning education has been practiced by First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit communities since time immemorial. Recently, there is an increasing interest in land-based learning across Alberta. In Canada and internationally, there is a strong and growing body of knowledge, strengthened by the teachings of Indigenous community Elders and knowledge keepers, regarding promising land-based learning approaches and how they contribute to improving the student experience.

By bringing together educators, Elders, knowledge keepers and Indigenous community leaders we will be able to create a dialogue, learn from each other and people who are living and breathing the work of Land-Based Learning and create new opportunities for knowledge transfer, educational methods, and building partnerships. All with the focus on creating better learning opportunities for our students, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

The Land-Based Learning symposium will focus on four models of education:

  • Goal 1: Share Learning

  • Goal 2: Share Promising Practices and Initiatives

  • Goal 3: Develop Curriculum

  • Goal 4: Develop Partnerships
