Being and Learning Outdoors Viewed Through the Core Competencies


Course description

Welcome to the French Immersion workshop series 

The workshop focuses on being outdoors as a learning option. Through the use of a rubric matching the K-9 Physical and Health Education curriculum (main content areas relating to learning outdoors) to Core Competencies, the choice to be outdoors can more readily be made. The idea is to encourage educators to view being outdoors as a viable option for which planning and assessment are made easier. Through relevant stories, examples, a possible walk and games, and a K-9 competencies rubric, let’s work on how to teach being outdoors, being in connection with land/water, and being attentive to our own learning. The workshop will connect to the First Peoples Principles of Learning. Over the span of 90 minutes, participants will be introduced to the topic and have the opportunity to connect with peers. Colleagues will hopefully find the rubric useful as a means to plan and assess being outdoors, and generate students’ self-assessments. The goal is to connect outdoor learning itself to the curriculum and core competencies as a learning experience.

Cet atelier explore quelques facettes entourant le choix d’ancrer l’apprentissage des élèves à l’enseignement à l’extérieur. Une rubrique M-9, incluant le programme d’éducation physique et santé et les compétences essentielles, est offerte en guise d’outil de départ servant à motiver le choix d’apprendre à l’extérieur. L’idée est d’encourager les éducateurs à choisir dehors tout en étant confiants que leur choix est fondé sur des éléments précis du programme d’apprentissage de la Colombie-Britannique. À travers quelques petites histoires, des exemples, une suggestion de jeu, et une rubrique M-9, apprenons comment se comporter à l’extérieur, comment créer des liens avec la nature et les plus qu’humains, et comment prendre conscience de nos propres façons d’apprendre. L’atelier est aussi lié aux principes d’apprentissage des Peuples Autochtones.


Participants must be in-service French Immersion teachers.
