• Outdoor experiential education: an alternative approach to learning

      Reydel, Alexandra (2020-05)
      This paper analyzes the philosophical foundations as well as the psychological and sociological benefits of the Outdoor Experiential Education (OEE) methodology, identifies existing issues with its real-world implementation, and looks forward into possible future developments within the field. Through a thorough analysis of state of knowledge literature and past research, new connections are drawn between the importance of OEE for the development of youth and society, the issues of equity and social justice that have yet to be resolved, and the field’s potential to empower diverse populations of young learners in the future.
