Learning on Location offers an innovative framework and set of pedagogical pathways for engaging student experience through critical engagement with place. The book draws on interviews and case studies with educators in the United States and Canada to highlight pedagogies-in-action and to identify programmatic models for embedding location-based learning within specific courses, majors, curricula, and campus-wide initiatives. Providing a mix of theoretical framing and practical application, Learning on Location is organized around three key practices highlighted within the chapters: 1) writing on location, 2) walking on location, and 3) engaging the civic on location. Learning on location as a framework and pedagogy complements engaged teaching and high-impact practices, using reflection and partnership to deepen student learning through place-making.
