Last week, fifteen of our M.Ed. and Humane Education Certificate Program students were at IHE’s facility for their residency training week. We had students from all over the United States, one from Canada, and one from Kenya. We learned so much from one another, each student contributing her or his creativity, passions, skills, and knowledge. All the students offered humane education presentations as part of their training week, and their imaginative activities and lessons will now become part of the canon that comprises the field of humane education that we’re creating together.
Peterson Obusuru, our Kenyan student, has almost single-handedly been bringing humane education to Kenya. From his efforts to make humane education part of the national curriculum, to his school presentations, to his teacher trainings, to his community outreach, Peterson demonstrated how humane education can and must pervade all aspects of society and reach all ages. He was an utter inspiration to all of us, and a group of IHE students now plans to travel to Kenya next summer to help Peterson in his work.
In the coming weeks, you’ll find new downloadable activities our HumaneEducation.org site, courtesy of our creative students. Stay tuned, and let us know if you have activities and lessons you want to share.
