Outdoor Learning and the Curriculum: A Webinar for Educators
This professional development webinar will demonstrate how the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority area of Sustainability can be addressed while taking learning outdoors. Outdoor learning using experience-based strategies supports children’s emotional well-being and physical health, increases engagement with learning, fosters ecological stewardship and positively impacts on environmental behaviors.
Webinar participants will:
• Learn how outdoor experiential activities can be linked to the curriculum, and be applied to Learning Areas including Science, English, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Arts.
• Be introduced to approaches that support students to increase critical and creative thinking, and have the knowledge, understanding and skills to engage in creating a more sustainable world.
• Receive a recording of the webinar, a resources list, activity descriptions with links to the Australian curriculum, and a certificate for 2 hours of professional development.
While the webinar is focused on primary school teachers, the learnings can also apply to other teachers and educators. The content relates particularly to sections 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.2, and 3.3 of the Australian professional standards for teachers.
