Listening to our own birdsong: Cultivating wisdom as a site of alchemy
What does it mean to cultivate our own inner lives as a place of sustainability in uncertain times?  How can we as educators and scholars greet the unknown and take up residence in our own creativity? This keynote will draw on ways for us to listen our own birdsong and bodily wisdom as a site of resilience and alchemy. 

Educational Game of Dungeons & Dragons - Kari Gustafson

Did you know that collaborative, story-based roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons are not only fun and interactive, but also a great context for learning and growth? Not only that, it’s possible to play in an online environment during COVID-19 physical distancing requirements. Come try D&D out and see how it works!
You are invited to participate in a hands-on, play-based (fun) online workshop about roleplaying games from an educational perspective. Anyone can try out being a player character – no experience required. Other interested attendees will be able to follow as the story unfolds during an online game session in Zoom. After the game, join the Dungeonmasters for a discussion about what can be learned through and from collaborative storytelling games.
