Jirásek, Ivo – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2022
In this paper I argue that every learning situation may be based on an implicitly religious essence.

Over the last ten years there has been growing interest in the judgement and decision making (JDM) of outdoor professionals, though research to date has focused on the JDM processes of experts.
