Description

Introducing a Nature Pedagogy
Opportunities for learning through an investigative nature pedagogy. Join us online!Student Wellbeing

Research tells us that the outdoors provides the best environment to address wellbeing, development, and deeper learning. All of which matters more than ever to teachers and students.

Using video footage, PowerPoint presentation, and expert commentary we will immerse you in the benefits of introducing a nature pedagogy. Explore how learning outcomes and links to the curriculum can be met naturally as children fully engage in their learning and investigate in the outdoor environment. See how regular visits to the ever-changing outdoor environment provides a canvas for children’s learning, problem solving, and creative expression. You will experience children learning holistically across the curriculum whilst demonstrating a deep respect for the natural environment and their place in it.

Using video footage you will see how Walker Learning adapts to take an investigative learning pedagogy for all Primary year levels to your natural environment context. Hear from practicing teachers about the positive results the introduction of a nature pedagogy has created. Watch children and teachers authentically immersed in learning and how this provides opportunities for linking and connecting to formal learning and content.

You will see –

  • Investigation sessions at local bush/beach settings
  • How links to the curriculum can be met
  • How to manage learning experiences in a nature setting
  • Tuning in, Focus Children, Reporter, and Photographer
  • Evidence and rationale for taking learning outdoors
  • The integration of indoor and outdoor learning and formal teaching
  • Examples of connecting to the curriculum and meeting learning outcomes

Let us inspire you to incorporate your natural setting with a pedagogy that suits our times, our teaching practice, and our children.
