A how to guide for Outdoor Education from: understanding the benefits, creating a climate of trust, risk management, trip planning and practical applications. In this workshop, I will be taking you on a short walk to a local park where we will put to practice some of my outdoor educational principles and lessons. You should wear comfortable clothing, dress for the weather and bring footwear you can hike in. You will leave with a small goodie bag with helpful tools to set you up on your adventures.
Anyone who wants to take their students outside but does not feel confident to do so. Teachers that would like to start an Outdoor Education class at their school and need some inspiration.
