Outdoor Education (EDUH2029)
UNIT OF STUDY
There is a substantial body of evidence that suggests that time spent in the outdoors provides many benefits for the individual including improving self esteem and psychological well-being, increasing the ability to overcome challenges, enhancing decision making skills, and improving interpersonal relationships. This unit provides the opportunity for pre-service teachers to not only plan learning experiences based on these theories, but also to implement and reflect on these experiences in a natural outdoor setting during a three-day camp. A strong focus of this unit of study is the preparation of pre-service teachers for teaching Outdoor Education in NSW schools, including the Outdoor Recreation option in the PDHPE HSC preliminary course. There will be an additional cost for the camp - approximately $300.
