Place-responsive Approaches to Outdoor Education

Professional development (PD) Tasman/Nelson

Posted: 01 November 2017
Notice reference #: 1H9fh5

This PLD takes a contemporary approach to development and implementation of Junior Camp and Senior Outdoor Education programmes in secondary schools.

When and where:

Friday 17 November, Founders Park, Nelson, 9am to 3.30 pm (This PLD was earlier advertised for September).

The workshop:

This approach to curriculum design constructs school-wide outdoor learning that incorporates cross-curricular, culturally responsive and environmental and sustainability threads. The approach is both exciting and forward thinking. 

Target group:

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. 

Your facilitator:

Jane Townsend, Deputy Principal at Nayland College, is your facilitator. Jane holds a Masters degree in Sport and Leisure Studies from the University of Waikato, her thesis documenting her journey in adopting place and culturally responsive pedagogies in her teaching and learning programmes.
