Food Justice

By: Colin Dring  

In this session, I invite instructors, students, practitioners, and scholars to participate in a facilitated discussion around how to embed food justice concepts, empirical studies, skills and dispositions, and community engaged scholarship into formal and informal educational practice in post-secondary institutions. This session will uncover what others are employing in their own formal (e.g. courses, labs, tutorials, online and blended learning spaces) and informal (e.g. mentorship, community's of practice, social gatherings) educational practices that embed food justice. Additionally, I aim to collaboratively develop a shared syllabus identifying key learning competencies, learning objectives, core food system and food justice concepts, reading lists, best practice for community engaged and involvement, strategies to link concepts to reflection and practice, and creation of a shared community of learners.
