This episode expands on the topic of place-based learning, which was also covered in Episode 103. Whereas the previous interview focused on place-based learning in an urban setting, this episode focuses on a rural-based program, the Teton Science School. The science school offers place-based experiences for students and faculty, and also helps conduct workshops on this topic for faculty. We are joined on the podcast by Josh Kleyman of the Teton Science School, as well as Dr. Scott Seaman, Dean of Ohio University Libraries, Delaney Dixon and Brandan Hogan, both Ohio University Students. Seaman, Dixon, and Hogan are all affiliated with the Ohio Fellows program, which participated in place-based learning at the Teton Science School.
