Wondering how to get your students outside? Curious about how outdoor education is working around Vermont? Looking to make it work in the very near future? Join a host of Vermont educators for this webinar on what place-based outdoor learning looks like in the time of COVID.

Outdoor place-based education can be leveraged to build relationships, elevate student voice and leadership, offer personalized learning and flexible pathways, and to help students develop agency and personal efficacy through service-learning and community partnerships. In this interactive webinar, we'll examine how the outdoors provide a context for authentic engagement in real-world phenomena.

**This is a repeat of the Outdoor & Place-Based Learning webinar from 9/3**
