Building the Universities of tomorrow- Bridging the Higher Education programs from indoor to outdoor
Project coordinator: Pane Stefanov
This project aims to introduce outdoor learning as an active, experiential approach to teaching and learning, open to all, that involves being outdoors as a central part of the experience. Our goal is to use the outdoor environment as a vehicle for transforming the experience into knowledge, skills, attitudes, and actions. This project will foster excellence and innovation in education by equipping professors and educational staff with the basic knowledge and skills to integrate outdoor educational activities in their education programs. On the other hand, we will present the major challenges to outdoor learning, such as staff confidence in teaching outside and uncertainty about how to deliver the curriculum through outdoor learning, which can be overcome by enabling professors and universities to work with and learn from each other. This project will result in a guideline „10 steps on how to prepare your outdoor learning experience“ prepared by the project participants.
Time period: 2021
