Connecting and Learning: Inclusive Exploration and Indigenous Games

December 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Connecting and Learning sessions aim to be a collaborative space for educators of all kinds.

This two part session is a space to share ideas, opportunities and challenges about land-based, nature-based, and environmental learning.

Session 1: Inclusion in Experiential Environmental Education

with Laura Sims (Ph.D) & Marie-Élaine Desmarais, Université de St. Boniface

Starting with an outdoor walk, we will identify what might be considered obstacles (physical, cultural, linguistic, socio-economic) to leading a diverse group in experiential environmental education, and then explore what can be done to help overcome these perceived obstacles.


Session 2: First Nations Games

with Norbert Mercredi, B.Ed., B. Phys. Ed. Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre

We will try some winter-season First Nation Games – inniwew matawaywina – games that are deeply important to First Nations language and a way to connect with leading a Good Way of Life – mino pimatisiwin.


Please note

Registration is required for this event.

Sessions will take place primarily outside. Please dress for the weather. Networking time and hot chocolate will take place indoors following the sessions.
