Outdoor Education Panel Discussion

For teachers, parents, and students, COVID-19 has been an unsettling experience and it continues to be so as we enter the Fall 2020 semester. However, outdoor learning has been touted by the Saskatchewan Government as one way to reduce the risks of a return to school.

How can all teachers incorporate outdoor learning into their repertoire? Back in June 2020, we invited a group of Saskatchewan educators to a panel discussion about their experiences with outdoor education to answer questions like this one.

Have a listen to the experiences of Mark Wiseman, Kristen Simonson, Deborah Gibson-Dingwall, David Vanderberg, Amanda Kornaga, and Mitch Lowe.  If you’d like, you can also view the panel discussion on YouTube.
