Outdoor Education & Place-Based Learning in the Now
Thursday, Sept 24, 3:30PM EST.
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**
This session will provide a rationale and framework for outdoor place-based learning across K-12, including research-based outcomes and benefits. Participants will ground themselves in their personal and professional experiences of outdoor place-based education and surface their questions, and then hear from a panel of current educators on their experiences this fall and the emerging promising practices and benefits of outdoor place-based ed in the era of COVID.
This webinar is provided at no cost to participants through a collaboration between the UVM Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education and Shelburne Farms.
