'Outdoor Teaching' is a new learning session for trainee teachers and educators, provided by the London Wetland Centre.
The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust has been at the forefront of environmental education for many years and welcomes thousands of pupils to the centre each year.
Our new 50-minute learning session has been developed specifically for trainee teachers. Delivered by our learning officers with vast experience of outdoor teaching techniques, it covers the essential elements required for planning and executing a successful field trip. The following topics are covered, but the session can also be tailored to your particular requirements:
• Planning and preparation
• Learning styles
• Supervision styles
• Managing risk
• Follow-up activities
The remainder of your visit can be spent exploring the resources and activities available to schools and how they might be approached. For example, the ‘quiet zones’ of the wildlife hides provide a valuable focus for class control, pond-dipping activities raise the pertinent issue of health and safety, while World Wetlands, our endangered birds exhibit,
is ideal for exploring opportunities for outdoor teaching.
Learning sessions are available Tues-Fri throughout the year in pre-bookable time slots. The price per student is £6.45, which includes admission to the centre, the learning session, free coach parking and access to a host of exhibits and resources. Accompanying lecturers visit free of charge up to a ratio of 1:10 (in addition to any one-to-one carers).
