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. It may be visible in experiential education, which utilizes challenge, adventure, and other unsafe situations intentionally and purposely. According to Rudolf Otto, the sacred as well as religion is characterized by awe and trembling…

Mees, Alice; Toering, Tynke; Collins, Loel – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2022
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. In contrast, this study examined the JDM of less experienced, competent, but fully qualified outdoor instructors (N = 9) and the development of their JDM…

Višnjic Jevtic, Adrijana; Sadownik, Alicja R.; Halavuk, Antonija – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2022
Existing research indicates that risky play plays a significant role in children's learning and development. Children's access to risky play is, however, culturally and institutionally mediated. The cultural values associated with a good childhood and the values and attitudes of people who are 'in charge' of children's activities have a…

Hills, David; Thomas, Glyn – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2020
Any use or non-use of digital technology in outdoor experiential learning requires critical examination.

This paper presents a conceptual framework, based on a systematic review of the literature, that…

North, Chris; Brookes, Andrew – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2017
This article examines the use of case-based approaches to fatal incidents in outdoor education (OE) with a view to fatality prevention. Fatalities are rare in OE and therefore it is nearly impossible for teachers to learn how to avoid fatalities from their own past experiences. It is, however, possible to learn from the mistakes of others through…
