Learning About the World: The Teacher’s Role in Supporting Outdoor Experiences Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Champlain Valley Head Start
Instructor: Lisa Guerrero

Research shows that educator involvement in facilitating outdoor play can heighten a child’s learning experience and stimulate positive developmental achievements. But what does that involvement look like? During this workshop, participants will reflect on their currently held beliefs about the functions of outdoor play and discover their ways of thinking about the role adults play in facilitating quality exploration of the outside world. They will then examine best practices and discuss strategies they can use to broaden their perspectives and access the full potential for learning in an outdoor environment.
