Target Group

Students from other disciplines are welcome to contact the international coordinator to explore the possibility of enrolment in the module.


Purpose

The module focuses on how outdoor learning environments can be used as a resource in teaching and/or educational or recreational activities in schools, institutions or community recreational facilities.

Whether the focus is on e.g. school or community gardens or outdoor musical instruments, the purpose of the course is to think out-of-the “indoor learning” box by bringing development and learning outdoors. 

We will work practically and theoretically in active learning communities with themes and issues which will contribute to strengthening our ability and interest in nature, culture and society. 

As well, practical, experimental and craftsmanship skills will be highlighted as a means to explore, with all senses, interpret experiences and create an environment for learning which promotes entrepreneurship and innovation.

Students, on their own or in cooperation with others, will work to create communities and facilitate learning, well-being and development in relation to children, youth and adults in outdoor learning environments and in learning environments out of the classroom.
