Event description

Description

Sponsored by Teachers Mutual Bank - An opportunity for Outdoor Educators in QLD to gather and engage with international keynote Sue Waite as part of her Australian visit.

Sue Waite

Associate Professor (Reader) in Outdoor Learning in Plymouth Institute of Education

Plymouth University

Sue Waite is investigating how place, people and pedagogies interact to support positive societal outcomes through play, learning, health and well being in the great outdoors. Sue’s research includes: looking at youth benefits from living in and engaging with activities within National Parks; Economic and Social Science Research Council grants looking at ‘Opportunities afforded by the outdoors for alternative pedagogies in children’s transition from Foundation Stage to Year 1’; and ‘Understanding educational and well being implications of learning outside the classroom through cross-national collaboration’. Walking in wild places is her favourite outdoor activity.


The evening will see a casual beginning with nibbles and drinks before a presentation from Sue, with opportunity for discussion and reflection on her findings. On arrival at ACU please look out for the signs directing you to the presentation. Any difficulties please contact Ginny Mitchell on 0459 335 506
