The Joy of Garden-based Education
Facilitated by Cathy Law / Hosted by Green Teacher

Wednesday, April 8

5:30pm-6:30pm Mountain / 4:30-5:30 Pacific

At this time in particular, getting outside and nurturing a garden is an incredibly healthy activity for children and adults alike. At this webinar you will learn the fascinating science behind the social, psychological and physiological benefits of using gardens to teach. Besides, donning a big grin, students learn scientific concepts more effectively when performing hands-on investigations outside so their grades soar. Outdoor based education is a sure way to nurture global citizens for the stewardship of our planet.

Stepping Stones into the Art of Participatory Leadership – Part 2
Facilitated by your Columbia Basin Art of Participatory Leadership Hosting Team – David, Bob, Ingrid, Jayme, Jenn, Lisa and Duncan / Hosted by CBEEN

Thursday, April 9

10am-12pm Pacific / 11am-1pm Mountain

As we seek to “locate” ourselves and our work amidst all the changes that are swirling around us, especially in this time of pandemic and unprecedented changes, this session will provide an opportunity to collectively explore the Art of Hosting Two Loops Model for Regenerative Leadership. This practice will allow us to see more clearly where and how we are being called into creating patterns of transformative change by hospicing the old systems that are collapsing and midwiving the new systems beginning to emerge.

All are welcome to join this session – no previous Art of Hosting experience is needed, although we will ask that you familiarize yourself with the harvest from the previous sessions.

The Webinar on Webinars for the Environmental Education Community
Facilitated by the Goodman Center / Hosted by NAAEE

Wednesday, April 9

1pm-2pm Pacific / 2pm-3pm Mountain

With offices and schools closed and more of us working from home, online meetings and trainings are rapidly becoming the norm. There are definite do’s and don’ts when it comes to virtual gatherings, but many of us have not been trained in how to run successful webinars, so they are often mind-numbing information downloads, plagued with technical problems, and waste the time they’re supposed to save.

This one-hour online class will show you (1) how to keep participants engaged from beginning to end, (2) the fine details of creating a good online experience, (3) how to overcome “the loneliness of the long-distance learner,” (4) how to use your two assets (voices and visuals) to maximum advantage, and (5) what we all can learn from talk radio to make our webinars better.

Zoom 101 for Educators
Facilitated by Ingrid Liepa / Hosted by CBEEN

Thursday, April 16: 10am-10:45am Pacific / 11am-11:45am Mountain

The COVID-19 situation is demanding a rapid transition from classrooms and face-to-face learning environments to online delivery. With the goal of speeding your journey along this new learning curve, this session will introduce the Zoom platform, walking you through the full range of features and how you can optimize the online experience and learning outcomes for your students, classrooms and/or communities.

Staying the Same, Yet, Totally Different
Facilitated by Matthew Broda & Trevor Dunlap / Hosted by Green Teacher

Wednesday, April 22: 10am-12:30pm Mountain / 11am-1:30pm Mountain

What a profound moment to be a teacher. In the space of a few days, the concept of a “traditional” educational experience was completely upended and forced teachers to redefine the ways they planned, delivered, and engaged students across the globe. And for those of us who relied on the experiential and immersive environmental components of teaching and learning, this presented an unprecedented challenge. How do we hold true to the belief and ethic of environmentally motivated and immersive teaching in a time where – overnight – screens are the universal mediator for learning?

In the spirit of this ever-changing landscape, be prepared to be active participants in the webinar as you experience the tools and methods for initiating a shift in delivery, while maintaining the core principles for environmentally engaged teaching and learning.

Stepping Stones into the Art of Participatory Leadership – Part 3
Facilitated by your Columbia Basin Art of Participatory Leadership Hosting Team – David, Bob, Ingrid, Jayme, Jenn, Lisa and Duncan / Hosted by CBEEN

Friday, April 24: 10am-12pm Pacific / 11am-1pm Mountain

Is it simple, complicated, complex or chaotic? And what does that mean for the way we facilitate sense-making and solutions? The Art of Hosting Cynefin framework helps us discern the nature of the challenge or opportunity in front of us so that we can make better sense of our own and other people’s behaviour and what leadership is being called for.

All are welcome to join this session – no previous Art of Hosting experience is needed, although we will ask that you familiarize yourself with the harvest from the previous session.

Indigenous Arts and Sciences: Connecting STEM to Indigenous Science
Facilitated by Michelle Cloud & Cheryl Bauer-Armstrong / Hosted by Green Teacher

Wednesday, April 29: 5:30pm-6:30pm Mountain / 4:30-5:30 Pacific

Understanding and respectfully acknowledging the interrelationships of phenomena and events in the natural world in a reciprocal and respectful way; honoring those relationships is the basis of traditional ecological knowledge. Contemporary First Nations youths, and all young people, could benefit from understanding the natural world and their relationship with it. A deeply collaborative approach between tribal, university, and K–12 partners has the potential to invigorate Indigenous youths in science endeavors, make STEM more relevant to them (and their peers), as well as foster positive school cultures.
