Workshop Description: Learning Outside the Classroom
This workshop guides participants through the process of considering the work they do with students in their classrooms to imagine how it might be transformed out-of-doors. Together we discuss barriers, concerns, benefits and many possibilities. Educators will leave with a few concrete and personally relevant ways to bring the learning outside.
