Program Synopsis

The outdoor Education EI Development Program builds upon the development of existing emotional intelligence competencies utilising the distinct, real world learning opportunities that come with the outdoor education experience (e.g. camp). Students attending outdoor education experience are presented with a unique and dynamic opportunity for personal development; discovery of depth of character, strengthening interpersonal bonds and overcoming physical and emotional challenges. While lessons offer learning outcomes encompassing the spectrum of EI competencies in the four branch model, there is greater flexibility in the order of delivery of activities in this program than others in the suite. Unlike other programs, some activities span many weeks and it is therefore likely that activities in this program may run concurrently to achieve best results
