Making your space work harder – Using your school grounds as an outdoor learning resource
A free twilight professional review and development opportunity facilitated by Architecture + Design Scotland.
Venue: Delivered in your school.
Audience: Secondary teaching staff teams from all curriculum areas or cluster teaching staff.
Date: March 2015
Are you using your school grounds effectively? Have you considered the outdoor learning opportunities on your doorstep? This session will provide you and your team with a space to develop creative ideas for outdoor learning using your current immediate outdoor environment.
Designed to address the GTCS Standards for Career Long Professional Learning the workshop will support participants to develop confidence and capacity in the delivery of outdoor learning through investigating the following questions:
- How can you make your immediate outdoor space and local area work harder for delivery of the CfE?
- What are the barriers and potential solutions to embedding outdoor learning in teacher practice?
The workshop aims to equip participants with tools to develop their practice in their own specific environment through collaborative action research. Providing practitioners with space and time for critical reflection on current outdoor learning practice and areas for development. Participants will engage in a practical and creative experience to look at their own immediate outdoor space and work through a process of assessing and mapping the opportunities that could be taken further. This work will be supported by the resources produced by Architecture + Design Scotland.
Limited workshops are available and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Dates are available in March 2015
