LEARNING IS AN ADVENTURE


AS AN EDUCATOR, MY EXPOSURE TO THE EXPEDITIONARY LEARNING EXPERIENCE HAS CONFIRMED MY BELIEF IN THE POWER OF RELEVANT CHALLENGES FOLLOWED BY REFLECTIVE PROCESSING. I HOPE TO APPLY THE CONCEPT OF EXPEDITION TO EVERY LESSON PLAN AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE.
-Arlene, Minneapolis Community Education

Our Twin Cities Center offers hands-on training for educators who strive to incorporate experiential education and social-emotional learning in their work. Participants investigate theory, practice and the educator/learner relationship. Our expertise supports themes in experiential education and social-emotional learning, including:

  • Promising Practices in Social-Emotional Learning
  • Experiential Education 101
  • The Art of Facilitation
  • Why Challenge and Risk are Important Aspects of Learning
  • Building Collaborative Teams
  • Youth Engagement
  • Expeditionary Learning
  • Safety and Risk Management

 

 Learn more about our ground-breaking SEL work with the Susan Crown Exchange and the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality: Preparing Youth to Thrive.

Highlights of the trip include the fabulous instructors and group, hiking, learning valuable wilderness, technical and leadership skills, challenging myself to be as flexible as possible with changing conditions, sunsets, cookies and a strong sense of community from my peers.
