What does it look like to lead across the diverse fields of adventure and outdoor experiential education How can we as adventure educators build the tools that empower students in a range of environments and educational modalities In this course, students will investigate multiple facilitation models for outdoor experiential education including traditional group process in youth, teen, and adult adventure education courses, adaptive sports education and recreation, wilderness therapy, and focused courses for specific users such as all female groups, Students of Color, or Veterans groups. Together we will build upon the basics of group process and explore advanced leadership and facilitation models that meet specific student and group needs. Course activities include learning from practitioners in the field, interviewing experts, and visiting programs to learn about and experience different approaches to the group process. Students will also have the opportunity to put into practice learned facilitation tools in field settings to build a strong skills set in group facilitation models across the fields of outdoor experiential education.
