The inaugural meeting of the NW Region Outdoor Learning Research Hub for Researchers and Practitioners in room LD (Langdale Building) 0.05 at the Ambleside Campus of the University of Cumbria.


Please contact Heather Prince  at University of Cumbria to book a place.

These pilot regional hubs are being established in the UK to try to draw together research that has been carried out, is ongoing and to identify the current and future research needs of practitioners in Outdoor Learning. The intention is to support high quality, frequent and progressive Outdoor Learning (OL) for children and young people, by enabling a more integrated approach to research and practice at a local level. At a national level, these hubs will feed into a Sector Working Group of the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom with a Strategic Research Group for Learning in Natural Environments supported by the Institute for Outdoor Learning, Natural England and Historic England. Through this framework, we hope to provide a more unified voice for Outdoor Learning to influence policy and practice, and to establish a broader platform on which to seek further funding to extend the research evidence base.

Research hubs in other regions

If you have an interest in these hubs but one in the South-West or Scotland would be more convenient for you, please contact Sue Waite at Plymouth University or Natalie White at East Ayrshire  respectively. If these pilot hubs are successful, it is likely that research hubs will extend to other areas of the UK.
