EP 01 Cultivating Imagination and Connection through A Walking Curriculum: Insights from Dr. Gillian
Dr. Gillian Judson, an educator, writer, researcher, parent, and primary catalyst behind the creation, direction, and expansion of imaginED, joins Klara and Michelle to talk about Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE) which blends imagination-focused teaching with Place-based teaching. The overall aim of the IEE approach is to provide powerful learning opportunities that also cultivate students’ understanding of the connectedness of all life and their sense of care and concern for the Earth.
We engage in conversation about her book “A Walking Curriculum” and how it sparked a brand new collaboration with Klara and Michelle, “A Walking Curriculum for the Early Years”.
