Alaska Wilderness Skills

 Coyote Mentoring Training.


Throughout this Dynamic Wilderness Awareness course, instructors will be practicing and modeling a pedagogical methodology called “Coyote Teaching.” More than a simple teaching practice, Coyote Teaching is an educational philosophy that brings the mysteries of nature to the student in a way that they can be inspired to learn on their own. A “coyote teacher” makes every learning experience exciting, something the student desperately wants to know. This approach seeks to spark curiosity and fuel self-directed learning that teaches the student how to seek answers on his or her own, instead of relying solely upon the teacher. In this philosophy of teaching, the “coyote” not only symbolizes the trickster, but is more importantly the keeper of knowledge.Throughout this Dynamic Wilderness Awareness course, instructors will be practicing and modeling a pedagogical methodology called “Coyote Teaching.” More than a simple teaching practice, Coyote Teaching is an educational philosophy that brings the mysteries of nature to the student in a way that they can be inspired to learn on their own.
