Place-based Education Badges
SEMIS Learning Badges
An Ecojustice approach to Place-Based Education has many layers and takes many years to develop a deep understanding of and practice. Our new badge system is designed to help SEMIS Coalition members create a curriculum for their own learning that is both purposeful and powerful. If you are not currently a Coalition member, and are inserted in membership, please contact Lisa Voelker or Ethan Lowenstein.
This pilot badge program begins June 2020 and will start small with a set of personally paced learning modules from our choice menu. This menu has been vetted for content and quality, and curated by the SEMIS leadership team.
To collect a badge
Participation in the majority of our annual Learning Series events is a requirement. In some cases specific workshops will need to be fulfilled to collect a badge. We ask that you also complete 2 learning modules for each badge from the choice menu + complete our short online reflection + participate in 1, 1-hour reflection circle where you can reflect and learn with other Coalition members. Some learning modules count towards more than one badge.
