Walkshop: Conducting an Outdoor Learning Resource Inventory at Your School LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

"Walkshops" and workshops provide hands-on opportunities to learn strategies and techniques for connecting urban children to nature.

In this workshop, participants will explore basic theory around outdoor and experiential learning, including how outdoor learning and outdoor education differ. Participants will venture outdoors to conduct an audit of outdoor spaces and consider how these spaces may be used by teachers (in/no/formal) for outdoor learning experiences to tie into the curriculum and pedagogy. By the end of the workshop, participants shall be prepared to return to their own schools, or learning contexts, and conduct an outdoor learning resource inventory with students, teachers, and administrators.

Max Capacity: 40
