Research in Outdoor Education: Summaries of Doctoral Studies, January, 1978.
Swan, Malcolm, Comp.; And Others
Supplementing the first volume of "Research in Outdoor Education: Summaries of Doctoral Studies" published in 1973 (ED 088636), this second volume contains some 121 dissertations, most of which were completed since 1972. All studies in environmental, conservation, and outdoor education were examined; those containing reference to "field experience" or to the provision of educational experiences outside the classroom are included. The criterion definition applied was "The use of materials and resources found outside the classroom to meet educational objectives." Generally, these studies fall into five major categories: (1) proposals for new program developments; (2) organization and administration; (3) historical analysis; (4) teacher education; and (5) evaluation. Listed in alphabetical order by author's name, each summary consists of a brief statement of the problem, the procedure followed, and a resume detailing results and conclusions. Ordering numbers and ordering information are included. An author index precedes the summary section and includes the title of the author's dissertation. (JC)
