Warren, Karen; Loeffler, TA
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v6 n2 p107-119 2006
This article provides a theoretical foundation for understanding women's technical skill development (TSD) in outdoor adventure. An examination of societal and biological factors influencing women's TSD focuses on gender role socialization, sense of competence, technical conditioning, sexism, spatial ability, and risk-taking. The article suggests leadership and instructional strategies for facilitating technical skill competency for women in outdoor education. (Contains 1 figure and 1 note.)
