We are very excited to announce our first Burnaby Place Based Learning Conference will be taking place on the Jan. 28th Curriculum Implementation Day at Burnaby Lake Rowing Pavilion!
We are thrilled to be joined by two amazing key note speakers, Lori Snyder and Gillian Judson.
Lori Snyder is a Metis Herbalist, educator, mother, and story-teller. Lori offers workshops to discover our wild, edible, native and medicinal plants in different communities around Metro Vancouver, the unceded territories of the Coast Salish People.
Gillian Judson is an Executive Director of SFU’s Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture and Educaiton. She will be speaking about her book A Walking Curriculum: Evoking Wonder & Developing Sense Of Place (K-12).
During the day, there will also be opportunities to connect with community partners and inspiring Burnaby teachers who have prepared resources and ideas to share with you.
A big thanks to Burnaby Local Environmental Educators LSA, Burnaby School District and EEPSA for being our event sponsors for making this day possible!
