This “Experiential Education” (EE) project to be undertaken at the new York University Markham Campus investigates mutually beneficial education initiatives with Indigenous partners, in the field of Creative Technologies. The team will use Community-Based Research (CBR) to investigate best practices and sustainable advisory models for EE partnerships, working with Indigenous communities located in the York and Durham Regions surrounding the new campus.
It will then apply this learning to develop an EE module for a new AMPD (Markham campus) Creative Technologies class that will be taught for the first time in 2023. This new module will combine Community Service Learning (CSL), with land-based pedagogies, and art and technology activities (virtual and in-person), connecting York students and Faculty with the history and present of the lands on which they learn, and with leading Indigenous educators, community leaders, and artists.
