Outdoor learning as an educational concept goes beyond the traditional understanding of teaching which takes place in the indoor classroom.
There is a large body of evidence about the benefits of outdoor learning, including improved language and communication skills, motivation, independence, confidence and self-esteem, concentration, creativity, etc.
All curriculum areas can be supported by outdoor learning but taking lessons outdoors also requires planning and facing challenges that stand in the way.
The course is primarily designed for primary school teachers and other members of staff looking for knowledge, skills, examples of good practice and advice to support the development of outdoor learning in their schools. However, also pre-school or secondary school teacher can benefit from theoretical lectures on experiential learning and first-hand outdoor experience.
