Philosophy and Goals for Outdoor Education.
Fitzpatrick, Clinton Neal
The purposes of the study were (1) to develop a statement of philosophy for outdoor education and (2) to identify goals consistent with the statement of philosophy. Writings of educational leaders on the broad concept of outdoor education were analyzed to determine common elements, and a statement of philosophy was thus developed. A list of goals was obtained from a review of literature and from a survey of persons in outdoor education. The goals were submitted to 20 directors of outdoor education programs for approval and then to 10 experts in outdoor education, 10 leaders in disciplines and professional areas of education, and 10 superintendents of school districts having outdoor education programs. Eight of the 9 proposed goals were approved by all 3 groups. Recommendations were that the statement of philosophy and approved goals be used as guidelines by individuals or institutions establishing or conducting outdoor education programs. (JH)
