The Learning Garden and the Firepit: An Exploration of Land as the Basis for an Interdisciplinary Pedagogy
Veronica Gaylie, University of British Columbia, Okanagan; Michael Marchand, University of British Columbia, Okanagan, Okanagan Indian Band.
Using traditional knowledge of the Okanagan First Nation, ‘The Firepit’ explores the ways in which pedagogy can be infused and enriched by the inclusion of alternative ways of knowing. The alternatives to traditional understandings of pedagogy help to create a space, both figuratively and literally, where new ideas and understanding can be manifested.
