Outdoor Education and Experiential Programme

Outdoor Education and Experiential Programme is a method of learning by doing, which takes place primarily through exposure to the external world. In such an education, the emphasis for the subject of learning is placed on "RELATIONSHIP" - concerning Humans and Nature, rather than the traditional, didactic education. The outdoor provides an unfamiliar and often unpredictable setting which serves as an excellent metaphor for the rapidly changing society and environment. Outdoor activities have a potential to stretch boundaries of learning and involve a certain degree of uncertainty and unfamiliarity. As a consequence, students learn teamwork and team spirit, communication and trust, leadership and problem solving skills, co-operation, planning and goal setting. Thus outdoor education is a means of curriculum enrichment, where the process of learning takes place out of the door and Increases the self-efficacy of an individual.
