In the two modules of the course, outdoor activities and experiential learning are intertwined with theoretical aspects on outdoor education and place-based learning. Active participation individually and in groups in outdoor activities are essential. We work with practical skills and activities, storytelling and environmental learning. A variation of informal assessments and documentation of learning processes includes projects, individual written texts, oral presentations, storytelling, You will work with photography and graphics, video, animation and hypertexts.
In both modules there will be a focus on multimodal presentations and documentation. Through project work, students will, in addition to verbal text, be using various (digital) media forms to inform and to describe. On excursions and in classroom, activities will include photography and graphics, video, animation and hypertext.
This class will start February 1st 2018.
