Teaching Outdoors

Are you tired of the traditional classroom settings and getting your CPD online?

Are you looking for a unique professional development opportunity?

Look no further than our Teaching Outdoors course led by tutor Pat O'Gorman, with Prof. M Ó Shúilleabháin and various guest presenters.

This course is designed to help primary school teachers improve their confidence in bringing their pupils outside of the classroom for diverse learning experiences. Discover the benefits of utilizing the local environment to teach all aspects of the primary curriculum, while identifying your strengths and weaknesses as a teacher and developing strategies to enhance your skills.

Through practical examples, we'll show you how to make the curriculum relevant in the context of the local environment, and provide the skills needed to confidently bring your pupils on exploratory visits in their own locality.

Plus, we recognise the importance of outdoor activities for wellbeing and encourage you to enjoy the great outdoors.

Join us in the picturesque Lingaun Valley (don’t worry if you’ve never heard of it) for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.

By the end of the course, you'll have developed the necessary skills to bring your teaching outside and create a more diverse and engaging learning experience for your students.

Register now and let's take our teaching outside!
