Our guest today is Dr. Gillian Judson, assistant professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University.  She has a passion for looking at imagination’s role in leadership and learning. We discuss what the walking curriculum is and how we can incorporate cognitive tools to help us imaginatively and emotionally engage our learners.  Gillian shares some examples of her inquiry questions and how they are used by Kelsey Keller in her intermediate classroom.
