Coalition for Education in the Outdoors Research Symposium


Date and Time:

Friday, January 12, 2018, 3:00pm to Sunday, January 14, 2018, 10:00am


A Research Symposium to explore current and future trends in using the outdoors for educational and therapeutic purposes. To be held January 12-14, 2018 at Bradford Woods, Indiana University's Outdoor Center. The call for proposals has been extended to September 22, 2017. The purpose of this gathering is to advance the empirical, conceptual, and theoretical bases of outdoor education. In addition to spotlighting current research, the program includes featured presentations on timely issues and ample time for both structured and informal dialogue.

The symposium is purposely small and informal to promote productive interaction. The event draws people interested in adventure education, organized camping, environmental education and interpretation, and other outdoor education contexts.  Because of the diversity of topics, the informal exchanges, the friendly atmosphere, and the quality of sessions, this event is a favorite of both well-established and emerging scholars in the field.
