Reviewing Outdoors

Since the NAOE/IOL publication of Reviewing Adventures in 1996 Roger has been training outdoor educators and trainers around the world in how to facilitate learning while outdoors (and in many different kinds of weather!).

Now you can spend the day with Roger on an outdoor journey - a start and stop walk of about 5 miles through a variety of locations that lend themselves to different kinds of reveiw and reflection.

The whole day will be spent looking at reviewing on the move, in the outdoors, using place, space and found objects as reviewing aids.

Why a walking workshop?
If you work outdoors it makes sense to learn these reviewing methods in the kind of environment in which you will be using them for real. We will be in your workplace - a particularly pleasant and stimulating one. We look forward to meeting you there.

Reviewing for Wellbeing
This article makes many specific links to the (Scottish) Curriculum for Excellence and how reviewing can contribute to well-being - in any part of the UK and beyond! In my view, if you pay attention to wellbeing then learning (almost) takes care of itself.
