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

Keep checking back for more updates and details throughout the summer.

Land-Based Learning

Field Trip Series

There will be a total of four learning experiences for pre-service teachers spread throughout the Fall semester. These learning experiences will focus on how land-based understandings, holistic understandings, and Indigenous pedagogical practices connect. All 4 learning days will also explore language and story connections of the land and work to uncover program of study connections in this place.


Opportunities On Hold

These opportunities for pre-service teachers are currently on hold. We are hopeful that we will be able to offer these trips again soon.
