Land and Place-based Learning: A Dialogue and Workshop Series

Why learn about land and place? What does the land teach us? How might this be relevant to you, your discipline and your students? What does it mean that our campuses are located on the ancestral unceded territories of the Lil’wat, Musqueam, Sechelt (shíshálh), Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations?
