Outdoor education is an approach that aims to provide learning in interplay between experience and reflection based on concrete experience in authentic situations.
Outdoor learning is also an interdisciplinary research and education field, which involves, among other things:
- the learning space being moved out into life in society, the natural and cultural environment,
- the interplay between sensory experience and book‐learning being emphasised,
- the importance of place being underlined.
For research in the field, see Forum for Outdoor Education.
