Guest: Sarah Van Borek

On October 4th, Sarah Van Borek joins us to share her thoughts about the “Power of Voice”, her work as a BCcampus Research Fellow, and her studies in Environmental Education and explorations to decolonize higher education.

Tune-in 12 Noon on DS106 Radio.    Join the conversation #LunchableLearning #ds106radio!


Sarah Van Borek is a Canadian educator, media artist, and arts-based researcher who taught in BC at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design from 2012 to this year’s spring term. Her life and work has taken her between Canada and various countries across Africa, and she is currently based in Cape Town, South Africa. This October she’ll graduate with her PhD in Environmental Education from Rhodes University in South Africa. Her doctoral research focused on developing a relational model of university curriculum using site-specific media arts towards reconciliation of diverse peoples and waterways, while contributing to decolonizing higher education. Her multimedia thesis – as part of her commitment to decolonizing her PhD process – includes podcasts, videos, a song, a music video, and a website. Her aim is for these resources to inspire other institutions and communities to consider adopting parts of this approach towards planetary wellbeing. From 2019-2020, Sarah was an EdTech Fellow with BCcampus, researching the potential for podcasting to support more inclusive online learning environments. She’s particularly passionate about possibilities that emerge in implicit and affective learning, especially through things like sound and voice (including the voice of nonhumans).
