Outdoor Learning Conference

 

At the International School of Düsseldorf, we are passionate about outdoor learning. Our outdoor learning program has been developing over the last ten years. Today, our elementary school has outdoor provision from reception to grade 5. We are the only international school in Europe to have outdoor learning developed to such an extent. Our aim is to bring together a community of educators who want to create or develop similar programs in their own schools.

The Outdoor Learning Conference 2017 schedule will feature:

  • Keynote speaker Kate Hookham – Mindstretchers Senior Trainer and the Coordinator of Living Classrooms.
  • The research and benefits of outdoor learning
  • Opportunities to observe authentic inquiry happening in the outdoors learning environment
  • Student-led skill sharing
  • Practical examples of units of inquiry
  • Development of learning spaces
  • Round table discussions
  • “How to” sessions e.g. risk assessment, fire, land art, storytelling
  • Technology integration in the outdoor learning environment
