Course Topic: Outdoor Education

Outdoor education includes any kind of activity school teachers can implement outside of the classroom, and possibly open-air, to turn student learning into an authentic lifelong experience.

As such, outdoor education can refer to teaching methodologies (e.g., visual thinking routines, Project-Based Learning) that make learning more vivid and connected to the city or town where the school is located as well as to learning activities a teacher can propose in external environments (e.g., cities, museums, forests).

Sometimes, outdoor education includes the use of ICT tools to create immersive experiences such as treasure hunts and escape rooms.
