|| I recently spent a very stimulating morning at a gathering in Westminster organised by the Education Select Committee as part of that committee's review of the purpose and quality of education in England. I have to confess I was anticipating a fairly dry revisit of many of the old chestnuts about what good education looks like.... I was pleasantly surprised and motivated by the actual debate.
The Institute had responded to an earlier consultation by the committee informing them of the findings of the Blagrave Trust funded work looking at the evidence base for outdoor learning. Others from the outdoor learning community had also submitted comments and this recent morning's conference contained a session on outdoor learning, a sign of a growing recognition of the contribution good outdoor learning practice can make to education. I expect to see further work by the education committee examining the approach to use of outdoor learning in English schools.
