About the Program:
EduCulture in partnership with the Master of Arts in Education Program at Antioch University Seattle (AUS) present the Leadership in Edible Education Certificate Program (L.E.E.). Launched in 2015, this groundbreaking leadership development program is designed for formal and informal educators, and other professionals, who are interested in making a difference through edible education in Pre-K, K-12, and post-secondary schools and the wider food community. Spread over four quarterly courses, with Summer and Fall points of entry, this intensive professional education program is aimed at building the cultivating the experience, knowledge, and repertoire for those who seek to work in the field of edible education, or incorporate edible education into their current practice. It is also a formal concentration within the AUS MAEd Degree program, making the first of its kind in a graduate education program.
As the capstone core course in our L.E.E. Program, Edible Education II: Field Experience & Culminating Field Project, engages participants in an intensive field experience that leads, through structured design and preparation activity, to a culminating learning experience grounded in the student’s professional area of interest. Projects may take the form of curriculum segments for school settings or sequenced instructional programs to take place in other sites. This course offers a chance for students to engage in actual relevant field experience and use that along with other resources to create a school- or field-based project or program.
Such a project is intended to be an opportunity for students to get a taste of their field of interest and build their repertoire in classroom and beyond-classroom curriculum and associated field projects through placement as an edible education field intern or extern with a local school, postsecondary, or community partner. Creating an elementary or secondary curriculum, postsecondary course, or community education offering provides students the chance to hone their knowledge and skills as well as to develop a tool kit for their professional portfolio and their future practice.
Students will design, frame and present a culminating field project and complete a literature review in their professional area of interest in edible education.
This culminating practicum is designed for those developing an edible education program to have a professional learning environment into which to more fully examine and enrich their program design, planning, and outcomes.
