Growing a yurt based education initiative
Dear Viewer of my Gaia University BSc portfolio,
My name is Amelia Parisian and I am an educator, events organiser, artist and nature enthusiast.
Welcome to a collection of my work and learnings throughout my Gaia University pathway (2010-2013). During these three years I made the transition from being a traveller in the USA to making a new home for myself in Stroud, UK. In Stroud I developed my career considerably becoming an educator in an alternative college as well as later setting up an education initiative for home schooling families.
My projects and learnings are presented in the form of what Gaia University calls output packets. These output packets are down the right hand side of this page. My capstone year projects can be found lower down the list.
The output packets have navigation systems which you can move through by clicking on the tabs at the top of each page.
The output packet reviews are labelled 'PODAPO' and can be found at the end of each output packet at the bottom of the contents page or appendices. I have further feedback notes from my main advisor, these are in the form of 'track changes' on large whole output packet text documents. I will email these upon request.
Thank you for taking the time to read my work,
