  1. Hello!

    I was just referred to your website and I enjoy intergrating outdoor education in class programming. Since we are doing more of the e-learning this term, this would be fun having a portion of the day for a family walk.

    Do you have more resources that could help aid my school program? Books or resources….anything would help 🙂 Thank you!

    1. Hi Derek,
      Yes, check out all the resources under the “Imaginative Ecological Education” tab. Also the Walking Curriculum resources. Lots of options.
      Would love to hear about how you employ and them during this time.
      Best,
      Gillian

  2. Hi Gillian,

    I am enrolled at UBC in the MEd in Math Education program and we are looking at Imagination Education this week in a Curriculum course.

    I can see that your name, as well as Kieran Egan’s, are leaders in this space, but perhaps you could share the names of other professionals (ideally 3) of whose work you are inspired by or are aware of.

    Thank you so kindly for your time,

    Janelle

    1. Hi Janelle,

      Gillian recommends reading Kieran Egan’s main books: Educated Mind and Cognitive Tools in the Classroom. She would also point to Maxine Greene’s work on imagination, as well as Stephen Asma’s book Evolution of Imagination (not education focused, though). You might also find any edited volumes we have put out helpful because they contain the work of people from around the world.

      A few examples:

      Egan, K., Judson, G. & Madej, K. (Eds.) (2015). Engaging imagination and developing creativity in education (2nd Ed). Cambridge Scholars Press.

      Cant, A., Egan, K. & Judson, G. (Eds.) (2013). Wonder-Full education: The centrality of wonder in teaching and learning across the curriculum. Routledge
