Place-Responsive Approaches to Outdoor Education
This PLD takes a contemporary approach to development and implementation of Junior Camp and Senior Outdoor Education programmes in secondary schools.
The day uses a place-responsive approach to outdoor learning to construct school-wide outdoor learning, incorporating cross-curricular, culturally responsive and environmental and sustainability threads.
Comparisons between traditional and place-responsive programmes are examined, case studies are studied and the possibilities within the context of participants own 'place' are explored.
Teachers and senior managers in secondary school who are open to a journey of change in their Education Outside the Classroom programmes.
Ideally, those attending will have responsibility for or have experience in working in Junior Camp and in Senior Outdoor Education, to bring a collective understanding of the two learning areas together. Attendance by 2 staff members is preferable but not essential.
