9-month, Weekend Immersion
Place Based & Environmental Education Bay Area, CA
9-month Immersion Take 1-weekend a month for 9 months to immerse yourself in the core study of Artisans Guild: Place Based Education. Combining traditional skills and wisdom with innovative organizational management the Trackers Artisans Guild tells the story and immerses you in a new way of understanding environmental and outdoor education.
How do we help shape a culture connected to the land and the natural world?
How do we develop educational organizations that create thriving and ecologically balanced communities?
How do we facilitate compelling experiences that fundamentally shift how a student interacts with their environment?
Traditional cultures fostered vital connection with the natural world through the beauty and power of living close to land. Today our world thinks of education as set of philosophies and theories that are often only successful for certain types of students. Yet when a village raises a child, every experience carries a fundamental life lesson and every child is respected. The Way of the Artisan is the way of flowing and learning with the personal stories of the individuals you work with.
Why the Artisan? Leadership is an art. In the ancient world, artists, storytellers and philosophers were among the first teachers. They passed the knowledge and wisdom of a culture down through generations to come. In the modern world, experiential and outdoor educators seek ways to help create a new culture connected to nature, the land and the earth around us.
The Artisans Guild offers training and certification in the educational processes of Trackers Earth. Work with the most innovative educators in the field of nature connection and environmental education while discovering your own strengths and skills as an instructor. Over the course of several weekends participants develop intensive experience in the following skillsets...
- Traditional skills and nature awareness to foster connection to the land
- Hyper-adaptive learning and systems thinking in structuring learning experiences
- Operational logistics and collaborative learning technologies for better curriculum implementation
Independent Study and ResearchYou are given independent study homework for skills projects outside of program weekends. The amount of work is flexible and tailored to students available personal time. This optimizes what you can be learning during actual course time with our instructors.
