Event Description

Friends,

 

Please join me on May 14th at 9:00 AM central for a live webinar entitled:

Go Outside to Learn; The Value of Outdoor Learning Environments

 

Summary

When present in nature all senses are stimulated, which is the optimum state of learning, blurring the boundaries between academic learning and creative curiosity. As a mini-ecosystem, the “outdoor classroom” fosters the use of systems thinking and emphasizes the interconnectedness. Through exposure to the intricate web of life, students come to understand that complex natural and societal systems often require holistic rather than linear solutions. In seeking a holistic understanding outdoor learning lends itself to inter-disciplinary studies employing multiple academic disciplines. Global environmental issues are reflected in microcosm and often lead to service learning projects that emphasize social responsibility.
