ECPN Conversations VI: Part I “Responding to Place and Thinking with Monsters
April 11th, 2023
In part 1 of this conversation series, ECPN pedagogist Chelsea Hann and ECPN Director Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw discuss the pedagogical processes involved in creating relations and curriculum in rural Northern British Columbia. The conversation highlighted the interrelated processes of pedagogical commitments, responsive relationality and situated curriculum making. They shared traces from a pedagogical project, in which a shared commitment to thinking relationally with land provoked the pedagogist, children, and educators to seek the ‘monsters’ of this place.
