Keywords:experiential learning, collaboration, reflective practice, social change, postsecondary education
The authors share an overview of, and narratives tied to, a new course on Ecofeminism. The course and its attributes are offered as a model for educators of various disciplines and interests to integrate inclusivity, communal learning, hope and community engagement in classrooms with an aim to advance sustainability. The concept of place and a highly collaborative approach to course design provide rich fodder for critically considering daily practices, how we engage with the world and the importance of connections to each other and the more-than-human world.
