Research in Outdoor Education: Summaries of Doctoral Studies. Volume 3.
Swan, Malcolm, Comp.; And Others
Third in a series, this volume contains summaries of 115 outdoor education dissertations, most written since 1978. Compilers examined studies in environmental, conservation, and outdoor education and included in the volume those containing reference to the field trip or outdoor experience. The criterion definition they applied was the "use of materials and resources found outside the classroom to meet educational objectives." Generally, the studies fall into five categories: (1) program development; (2) organization and administration; (3) historical analysis; (4) teacher education; and (5) evaluation. Listed in alphabetical order by author's name, the summaries include a brief statement of the problem or purpose of the study, a description of the procedure followed, a statement about the results and conclusions, and an order number. The volume contains complete ordering information for copies of dissertations from Xerox University Microfilms and an alphabetical index. (SB)
