Many teachers would like to combine their love of the outdoors and to enhance their expertise and preparedness to teach in that area, and as we know, teachers are often teaching out-of-field. Having great teachers in Outdoor Education can only enhance the outdoor industry.
Federation University is now offering Micro-credentials in middle years and senior secondary Outdoor Education, designed to fit within the Victorian VCE curriculum. These 2 units may appeal particularly to HPE teachers who have undertaken Outdoor Education teaching duties, and who want to increase their confidence and knowledge in the field. This is an excellent professional development opportunity for our colleagues, and I hope that this information can be distributed through your networks. See our Education Micro-credentials page for more information.

The staff at Federation University have also shared the welcome news that undergraduate degrees in Outdoor Education are going from strength to strength and they are confident that Fed graduates will make great contributions to the outdoor industry for years to come.
