Environmental Stewardship and Storytelling through the Humanities
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM
This workshop will review ways to identify landscapes or elements of landscapes to spin into meaningful stories that personally connect listeners or readers or learners to places and natural resources, as well as cultural one, in an effort to generate support for environmental stewardship. We will also review and practice dialogic techniques for interpretation that are increasingly "best practices" in the field of historic site interpretation. The workshop will also provide online resources that guide resource identification, research, and storytelling. We will introduce concepts for learning to see -- through multi-dimensional perspectives and critical thinking. - Dr. Leah S. Glaser, Public History, Central Connecticut State University
