This themed collection is for teachers and school leaders on the theme of learning in nature. A themed collection brings together a range of useful resources on a specific topic to support practitioners deepen their knowledge in this area and shape their own professional learning. These collections can also be used to inform collegues’ professional development and inform school policy and practice.
Focusing specifically on learning in natural outdoor settings (as opposed to built-environment locations such as museums or city streetscapes), this collection explores the impact of outdoor learning on wellbeing and attention and considers the different barriers to learning outdoors. It is designed to help you to critically reflect on the current opportunities for outdoor learning in your context and how you may support students to engage with nature.
This themed collection incorporates a range of content types to support professional learning and reflective practice, including:
- A case study on bringing nature into the curriculum in accessible and creative ways and research reviews summarising the latest evidence base
- Reflective questions to support learning and reading lists signposting further support and resources.
