Conceptual learning in outdoor environmental education programs

Jan Činčera, Bruce Johnson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we summarize the relevant literature on conceptual development and link it with the practice of the programs we analyzed in our study. While we found many examples of good practice, we also identified certain limitations. Based on these findings, we discuss potential opportunities for connecting outdoor environmental education programs more closely with school curricula and for sharing some level of control over the programs between program leaders and school teachers.
