2017 SUMMER INSTITUTE:
Design, facilitation, and evaluation of OEE curriculum
EDCP 423 96A
All courses are subject to minimum enrolment. We advise that participants do not finalize any travel arrangements until notified that this course is confirmed.
The EDCP 423 course builds on core competencies introduced in EDCP 323 to further develop and explore the creation, implementation, and evaluation of OEE experiences. Particular emphasis is placed on curricular integration and local realizations for formal and non-formal learning environments.
- Students must have taken the EDCP 323 prerequisite, or have the instructor’s permission to take this course. Please email the Program Advisor if you would like to request that the prerequisite be waived.
Students develop awareness and understanding of a range of skills and processes related to design, facilitation, and evaluation of OEE programming and curriculum.
A variety of outdoor experiences will be explored, including an overnight out-trip. Further course details, required fees, and specific information regarding the out-trip will be provided by the instructor.
Students enrolled in these courses should be aware of the following conditions:
- Overnight out-trip is compulsory of the course – confirm dates before registering. Attendance is mandatory;
- Additional field trip and equipment rental fees apply;
- Courses occur primarily in the outdoors, be prepared with appropriate gear and fitness levels.
- Risks generally associated with outdoor activities are inherent in this course. Please inquire in advance if you have questions or concerns. Your registration implies acknowledgement and acceptance of such risk. Risk related forms will be provided to you with the course outline. You will be required to return these on the first in-person meeting day.
- Students will be required to pay $75.00 to participate on course out-trips. Fees must be paid in cash to the course instructor, and shall be receipted. Course fees vary based on the costs of the diverse field experiences, and students will be provided with a cost break-down for these additional fees, if one is requested.
The summer institutes, EDCP 323 and EDCP 423, are both required courses for the OEE Diploma, and can therefore be applied towards the UBC Diploma in Education – Outdoor Environmental Education program.
This is a customized diploma program wherein each student selects a cluster of courses in themes integral to OEE – Environmental/Ecological/Sustainability Studies, Indigenous Studies, Healthy Living, and Outdoor & Skills Courses. Learn more.
I am rather passionate about outdoor education, and I am attempting to live more ‘locally’ (whatever that might mean), and explore this in my approach to outdoor education. I know myself to be an educator, philosopher, poet, and fierce advocate by nature. I hold a BC teaching certificate from SFU, and have taught with various age groups and in distinct educational settings, including pre-school, elementary school, high school, post-secondary school, and with adults and seniors.
My educational pursuits also include a Master’s (Diversity in Curriculum and Instruction) and a Doctorate in Education (Curriculum Theory and Implementation), both from SFU. I am also involved with the Wild About Vancouver (WAV) Outdoor Education Festival and exploring ways that in/non/formal educators can help increase outdoor learning and time spent outdoors during instructional periods.
I have enjoyed participating in experiences with some fairly radical work teams, which have significantly (in)formed my “ways” of teamwork and learning. I am rather open to diversity, difference, and making meaning through sharing and participation. I have learned that outdoor quests are not about the summit, but rather the journey.
