Description

This book is intended for outdoor instructors and outdoor instructors in training. The skill of teaching is different to the skill of an outdoor activity though both sets of skills can complement each other. The art of teaching can be learned through observation and experience but is best anchored in the science of teaching. This book is intended to give the theoretical background needed for anyone teaching in the wild outdoors.

The book is useful for the following outdoor instructors:
Expedition
Canoeing and kayaking
Caving
Climbing and mountaineering
Skiing
Backpacking and camping
Environmental Education
Outdoor leadership training

The benefits to the readers are:
 An understanding of educational theories pertinent to teaching and learning in
the outdoors
 Useful concepts that can improve any instructor's teaching skills
 An understanding of what may be working for instructors and what may not be
working for them in their present teaching (and why).
