Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Learning Outside the Classroom is a well-written, accessible and carefully structured book that is equally applicable to educators wherever they are working. The arguments and ideals of Beames, Higgins and Nicol build a robust foundation for engagement with the outdoors as central to the purposes and practices of all education."
Australian Journal of Outdoor Education


"This excellent book should prompt us all to reflect on whether we need to get out more. It includes new teaching ideas and masses of justification for teachers who already make some use of outside spaces, as well as reassurance and practical guidelines for thoese who have become too classroom-bound."
