The world beyond your classroom can provide all the ingredients you need to create amazing real-world learning experiences for students.
 
This conference will help unpack the many ways teaching and learning can be enhanced by taking students outside. We will explore safe ways of engaging students in a variety of outdoor contexts that will support learning throughout the curriculum.
 
Learning Outside the Classroom will provide participants with practical ideas and pedagogical approaches to taking learning outside. We will explore a range of hand-on multidisciplinary teaching and learning activities that will build skills and knowledge within subject-specific areas. We will investigate ways of supporting the sustainability cross curriculum priority and the integration of mobile technology.
 
This conference is led by the Field of Mars Environmental Education Centre team. Collectively the centres staff have over 80 years of expertise in leading and developing curriculum focused teaching and learning programs in outdoor contexts.
 
This conference is aimed at people working with Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5 and Stage 6 students.
