Emotive Outdoor Learning Experiences in Higher Education: Personal Reflections and Evidence
Leadbetter, Peter; Bussu, Anna; Richards, Michael
Psychology Teaching Review, v25 n1 p67-71 2019
Outdoor learning experiences in Higher Education (HE) provide students with the opportunity for emotional development, cognitive development and learning. Despite this, the literature exploring the impact of emotive outdoor learning experiences on students' development and learning is scarce. The aim of this paper is to present an overview of the key factors important for the delivery of outdoor learning experiences in HE. The paper will also incorporate the authors' personal experience of delivering emotive outdoor learning in HE (visiting Holocaust sites with undergraduate students). Broad recommendations for the future design and delivery of emotive outdoor learning experiences are also discussed.
