Third meeting of the NW Region Outdoor Learning Research Hub for Researchers and Practitioners on 26th April 2018, 2pm to 4pm at the Ambleside Campus of the University of Cumbria.
At this meeting, we will be sharing the new modelling of Outdoor Learning emerging from the research and policy development at Natural England. The intention of the hubs is to support high quality, frequent and progressive formal, non-formal and informal Outdoor Learning (OL) for children and young people, by enabling a more integrated approach to research and practice at a local level.
The University of Cumbria also invite you to attend the Outdoor Learning Research & Development Symposium which takes place immediately prior to the research meeting from 10am to 1pm . This symposium is now fully booked.
As you may know, these 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. This initiative is supported by the Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL), Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, 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.
This meeting will provide an opportunity to introduce you to our OL Research Hubs Research Assistant supported by IOL who will be working on this project.
There is pay and display parking available on campus and on the other side of Rydal Road.
