Land-Based Opportunities

The Werklund School of Education is committed to working alongside and learning from Indigenous Elders, leaders, and communities. These opportunities connect pre-service teachers with the land and help them to embed this work in their teaching.

This Year's Opportunities

For 2021, there are a series of Professional Development sessions as well as field trips available. Please continue to check back as opportunities are updated and added.
