Embracing the Shift 2021

In 2020, we brought you Natural Curiosity in the New Normal, a four-part conversation about getting outside and staying outside amid COVID-19. We highlighted an Indigenous lens on the current crisis in education, and invited educators to slow down and embrace the natural world as co-teacher. In our continuing series, Embracing the Shift: Sharing Our Pandemic Stories of Connecting to Land and Children’s Natural Curiosity, we hope to build on these foundational ideas, with more educator stories to further unpack the principles and practices laid out in Natural Curiosity 2nd Edition.

This series is now complete and available for you to access on our Webinars Archive Page.

Webinar Testimonial

Danielle Wittick

Director, Not Your Average Daycare

I just wanted to thank the Natural Curiosity team for hosting such an amazing webinar last night. The interaction between Doug and Joseph was inspiring. Doug being in the unknown with Joseph as he spoke to the healing powers of plants is exactly what our educators need to be, in the unknown. This is how you begin your journey of taking learning outside, having that unknown is how a co-learner experience begins. It was an exhilarating experience. Thank you again.

The webinar hosted by Haley Higdon in December, 2020, inspired me to read Natural Curiosity 2nd Edition. It speaks directly to teachers in support of our outdoor learning inquiry experience. I especially appreciate the indigenous perspective. Connection to place, land, nature and community is what teaching and learning are all about. This well researched and easy to read book supports this pedagogy entirely. We are hoping to ignite the spark of natured based inquiry learning with Natural Curiosity across our K-5 elementary school. Thank you for the inspiration!
