EDUC 2050 Outdoor Education & Leadership

The outdoor education component of the NOLS semester course includes theory and specific techniques for education in the outdoors. The leadership component of this course uses a progression that includes theory, modeling by staff, extensive coached practice, and independent student application in real situations. Students will be given the opportunity to become certified as "Leave No Trace Trainers." This course is part of the NOLS semester course and must be taken concurrently with BIOL 2045 and G&R 2050. On certain semesters it is also taken concurrently with HLED 2010. NOLS semesters are taught experientially, so climate, season, terrain, participants, specific course selection, and other factors generally support some outcomes more than other. (1 - 5 lect.)
