Our current crises of racism and a global pandemic are showing us that “how we do education” has a tremendous impact on social inequity. In this Webinar + Workshop, we explore the relationship between experiential education and social justice education. The webinar interactively engages the audience through storytelling techniques, asking participants to identify how our work, as experiential educators, challenges dominant educational paradigms. The workshop explores what it means to “re-story” experiential education so that participants can more intentionally integrate social equity into their teaching. It includes individual and group work, applying methods such as Spoken Word, cognitive mapping, and visual art. Workshop leaders will also share tips on creating spaces for social justice education and facilitating dialogues on challenging topics.
