How do we ensure high quality learning outdoors?
Outdoor learning is often considered synonymous with discovery learning, yet there is every opportunity to raise motivation, develop conceptual understanding and have intentional impact on conceptual understanding outside the traditional classroom environment. I can deliver CPD to build confidence in your staff team, finding solutions to perceived problems, and demonstrating how the Maths Mastery approach can be adapted to the outdoor classroom. Training is interactive, focusing on simple takeaway ideas that minimise teacher workload and have positive impact for learners.
With over twenty years experience in formal, informal and charity sector education, I am able to support schools to implement outdoor learning, regardless of the school location and outdoor space available.
In light of the current situation, online CPD/twilight sessions will be available from September 2020. In person outdoor training may be possible depending on the situation.
