Winter EFS Immersion

Thursday, March 23, 2017 to Saturday, March 25, 2017

Shelburne, VT

**NOTE NEW DATES** The Winter Immersion is for those wishing to dive deeply into their practice and learn in a residential, retreat-like setting. We’ll be focusing on the intersection of education for sustainability (EFS) and ethnography; exploring ways to engage students in meaningful learning that results in improved quality of life in communities. Participants should have a foundation in EFS or place-based learning, ethnography and curriculum development strategies. The immersion has a design studio feel with participants self-directing much of their work with inspirational speakers and workshops/explore times. This course is very action oriented with an expectation at the end that each participant has a project or curriculum to implement.
