Presentation Transcript
slide2
Accredited 2006 to 2009
  • Experiential learning underpins course
  • Minimum of 20 hours per semester

(6 hours is a day)

slide3
Naturalist approach
  • Interpreting
  • environments
slide4
Unit 1: Understanding Outdoor Experiences
  • Trips in largely natural environments
  • Unit 2 :Environmental Impacts
  • Trips can include environments subject to human intervention
slide5
Decide on trips based on

the following:

  • Budget
  • Activities/experiences you can undertake
  • Staff
  • Extended vs. Day activities
  • School calendar
slide6
Student background eg. Flat or white water/ religion or gender issues
  • Available equipment/skill level
choice of trips
Choice of trips
  • to journey through an environment,

eg. rock journeys rather than climbing

  • trips which encourage self-sufficiency,
slide8
observing the characteristics and types of environments, living and non- living things,
  • to observe the effects of nature on humans, and the effects of humans on nature.
slide9
*paddle touring - to observe river hydrology, land formation, wildlife and vegetation, human-nature relationships
slide10
rock journeying -cliff formation, texture, structure, long-term change, wildlife and vegetation, human-nature relationships.
slide11
coastal activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, rockpool rambling, sailing, surfing, coastal walking (perhaps a combination) with a focus on the journey to observe hydrology, coastal formations, marine and coastal wildlife and vegetation, human-nature relationships.
slide12
bushwalking -stopping to observe environmental features such as watersheds, land forms, ecosystems, human-nature relationships.
slide13
ski touring, snow shoeing -observing structure and function of alpine environment, wildlife and vegetation, seasonal change, human-nature relationships.
slide14
cycle touring on tracks, stopping to observe environmental features such as watersheds, land forms, ecosystems, human-nature relationships.
the activities should allow students to develop
The activities should allow students to develop:
  • personal critiques of human-nature relationships
  • ways of knowing nature (which are not primarily science-oriented)
  • a sympathetic understanding of nature
slide18
informed contributions to discussion of environmental issues
  • skills and knowledge which exclude the use of weapons or mechanical devices which replace human effort
slide19
2 Areas of Study in each unit
  • 2 Outcomes
    • Key Knowledge
    • Key Skills
assessment
assessment
  • school-based decision
  • not reported to VCAA
  • can be: grades
          • descriptive assessments
          • other indicators
unit 1 understanding outdoor experiences
Unit 1.Understanding Outdoor Experiences
  • Area of Study 1: Motivations for Outdoor Experience
    • Nature
    • Motivations
    • Human responses –fear
    • Media portrayals
    • Risk
    • Planning for safe participation
    • Minimal impact
area of study 2 humans and nature
Area of Study 2: Humans and Nature
  • Valuing nature eg. as a resource, for adventure
  • Experiential knowledge of nature
  • Access issues
  • Effect of technology on individuals
slide24
Types and characteristics of environments

eg. Alpine, grassland

Interrelationships between biotic and abiotic

e.g marine life and water

Effects of natural changes. eg. day/night, seasons, tides, fire, drought

Land features,eg. public/private land

Practical skills

area of study 2
Area of Study 2
  • Impact of conservation, recreation, commerce on natural environments
  • Minimising and managing human impacts

eg. zoning, regulations

  • Codes of conduct
  • Impact of technology on

natural environments

  • Impact of urbanisation
