Place as Lived in the Salish Sea – The Storied Lives of the Southern Resident Killer Whales Webinar
April 18 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
In this webinar, through story as pedagogical witnessing, Dr. Sandra Scott, Professor of Teaching, Science & Environmental Education, Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy, Faculty of Education, UBC Sustainability Fellow, will introduce place as bioregional, lived through experiences within our own backyards. She will share the stories of the Southern Resident Killer Whales to emphasize the importance of nurturing relationships with the more than human world. The purpose of this story-telling experience is to empower us to develop an in-depth understanding of a unique, precious, and critically endangered community with whom we share a home. Her hope is for educators to embrace story in their own practice to introduce, discuss, reflect, and act upon issues of shared place and community. Themes will include place as eco-pedagogy, ecojustice, ethics, empathy, and endangered species with special attention to ways of knowing, being, and healing.
