This course uses the fundamental process of actual lived experience to explore the cultural, ecological and political lenses which influence our thoughts and behaviour. In contrast to more formal approaches to learning, this course exemplifies experiential learning in its delivery, as well as in the content of its curriculum.
You will consider the histories, contemporary application and growth of outdoor and experiential learning at the intersections of professional practice, pedagogy and philosophy via debate & discussion, creative reflection, critical analysis and critique of research and evidence.
The course is transdisciplinary, and teaches across disciplines as varied as anthropology, philosophy, Bushcraft, therapeutic landscapes, art, pedagogy, eco-psychology, outdoor and environmental education, experiential learning, social science, environmental humanities, to name only a few.
On this course you will...
- Have the opportunity to be creative and critical in challenging accepted ideas about both the contexts of experiential learning and about yourself.
- Meet vibrant students of different ages and cultures, sharing conversations that will challenge your most basic perceptions.
- Explore options for your personal and professional lives derived from many disciplines and cultures based on a reconsideration of the very processes of sensation, perception and cognition.
- Have first hand experience in an array of environments exploring topics ranging from Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), human-environment relationships, health and wellbeing, therapeutic landscapes, and many more.
- Be taught by an internationally renowned, highly-qualified, experienced, empathetic, and diverse staff team with a breadth of expertise in pathway areas and in creative and imaginative teaching and learning.
