Why leaders matter in advancing outdoor pedagogy in early learning, schools and communities
The research is clear – children and adults benefit from experimenting, exploring, co-investigating and learning outdoors. But, to make this shift from an indoor space, leaders have a significant role in changing practice. Educators benefit from being surrounded by leaders who embrace and become partners in collectively imagining the possibilities of children experimenting, exploring, co-investigating and learning outdoors in all kinds of spaces and places. This presentation will highlight why a shift in practice requires leaders to develop an outdoor pedagogy lens in their practice.
