Outdoor education

It is not an approach working for everyone, since it takes certain attitude and level of "inner readiness" for a learner to take OE as a strong learning opportunity, not just as a leisure time activity or recreational event. What’s more, fields of study where OE is efficiently applicable are restricted, and learning some "traditional" subjects requires rather classroom settings, though it’s always nice to combine it somehow with "field trips" in the nature to refresh the minds and bodies of learners and provide a different atmosphere. It is a big possibility to support building soft skills and competences, such as self awareness, crisis management, team work, decision making, leadership, conflict resolution, communication...

Outdoor Education creates a context, which is so important for learning. It brings strong and specific settings for the learners. It is a holistic approach, meaning that it requires involvement of learners’ whole BEING (physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual).

OE involves:
1) CHANGE OF ENVIRONMENT: it creates authentic processes, when it is easier to remove "social masks“ and deal with real issues
2) LEVELING OF ROLES: Outdoor context places learners on a common ground in case of proper facilitation of the processes
3) ENJOYMENT AND FUN: Which creates more engagement and increases the motivation of learners
4) TRUST: High degree of interdependence among the group of learners (which is not usual in traditional "classroom environment")

So what is Outdoor Education in other words?
• Relationship with YOURSELF through meeting the challenge
• Relationship with OTHERS through group experiences and shared decision making
• Relationship with NATURAL ENVIRONMENT through direct experience

OE involves in itself Challenge, Fun & Experience, which are the key elements that young people need in their learning process.

The model of the Learning Combination Lock, by Colin Beard and John P. Wilson explains how external stimuli are transferred into internal processing through senses. Therefore, the more senses are used during the learning process , the bigger the possibility of learning will be deep. This is why we believe Outdoor Education is an efficient tool for learning, since it involves multiple senses in its process.

As John Graham suggests in his book "Outdoor Leadership: Technique, Common Sense and Self Confidence" (1997), there are 3 foundations of effective outdoor leadership:
1) Technical skills: trip planning, first aid protocols, knowledge of legal issues, crisis response, risk management,
navigation, specific skills for activity, etc.
2) Interpersonal skills: communication, team work, leadership style, decision making, facilitation, mediation, empathy,
understanding of group dynamics, self awareness, sense of humor, etc.
3) Judgment skills: awareness of environment, of the group, capacity to work with incomplete information, understanding of different decision making processes, ability to in-vision desired outcome.

He draws above mentioned skills as a model of a 3 legged stool. It is very important that the stool keeps its balance, meaning that ideally, outdoor leaders should have those skills balanced and harmonized, so that no skills of its legs are dominant and overtaking others, but they harmonically fill in each other.

In the same book, John Graham proposes 4 Fundamental Responsibilities of Outdoor Leaders who work with groups in outdoor settings:
- to minimize risk (both physical damage, and psychological harm)
- to minimize negative impact (leave no trace)
- to maximize learning
- to maximize enjoyment

Topics connected with outdoor methodology:
• Personal Development & Self-Awareness
• Training of Trainers & Competence Building
• Sustainability & Up-cycling
• Transcultural Learning & Minority Rights
• Soft Skill Development & Employability
• Healthy Lifestyle & Survival Skills
• Video & Photography in the Nature
• Human Rights & Migration Issues
• Technical Outdoor Skills
• Small/Simple Living
• Promotion of Volunteering

[Text elaborated by organization Droni]

Outdoor education is often referred to as synonymous with adventure education, adventure programming, and outdoor learning, outdoor school, adventure therapy, adventure recreation, adventure tourism, expeditionary learning, challenge education, experiential education, environmental education, forest schools and wilderness education. Consensus about the meaning of these terms is also difficult to achieve. However, outdoor education often uses or draws upon these related elements and/or informs these areas. The hallmark of outdoor education is its focus on the "outdoor" side of this education; whereas adventure education would focus on the adventure side and environmental education would focus on environmental. Wilderness education involves expeditions into wilderness "where man is but a visitor."
