All I's on Education: Imagination, Integration and Innovation - How Teachers Honour Student Voice and the Inquiry Process

Tags: Drama, Event
As teachers and life-long learners, we are constantly engaged in the process of reflection and inquiry into our own practice. As artist educators and drama and dance teachers we engage in the creative process daily with our students and within our own creative work. Principal Investigator Kathy Gould Lundy and her research team at York University (Professors Belarie Zatzman, Naomi Norquay et al.) engaged in a unique project that explored Inquiry. We at CODE were excited to witness this culminating performance.  Truly a love story for and by teachers with student work and experiences at the centre. In fact, student thinking was truly made visible as they were considered “Innovative Practitioners.”  Deep questions were raised about location, proportional reasoning, stewardship, historical perspectives: big ideas, big questions all through the arts and a transdisciplinary lens. Cameron Ferguson, our Central East representative attended this inspirational night of culminating drama about teacher inquiry and shares a personal reflection of the experience here.
