Using experiential learning and storytelling to inspire critical thinking about place
The Salish Sea Curriculum Repository makes available open educational resources (OER) for use in developing and teaching interdisciplinary, place-based lessons and courses about the Salish Sea. Many of the materials shared here have been developed as part of the "Situating Ourselves in the Salish Sea" grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Please use this repository to:
- Find a place-based learning activity to teach or adapt
- Browse a curated guide to resources about the Salish Sea
- Learn about the interdisciplinary, cross-institutional context of this repository
An example from spring 2020
In spring 2020 at Whatcom Community College, Anna Booker and Anita Harker co-taught SALI 201, Introduction to the Salish Sea. In this video, students share reflections on this virtual, place-based learning experience. Learn more about the modules taught in this course.
