Outdoor Learning Toolkits

Outdoors Victoria (OV) advocates and supports outdoor learning as an important method of teaching by using the outdoors within every day classes. From the early years right through to tertiary level, we have developed plenty of Toolkits for teachers to increase their confidence in taking students into the outdoors across a variety of curriculum focus areas.

Through DET’s Strategic Partnership Program funding (SPP), Outdoors Victoria as lead organisation in partnership with ACHPER Victoria (Australian Council Health Physical Education and Recreation), EEV (Environment Education Victoria),  GTAV (Geography Teachers Association of Victoria) and Parks Victoria have created a series of Primary and Secondary Teacher Toolkit resources to encourage the use of the outdoors within teacher’s every day classes.

Within the Teacher Toolkits you will find a range of information from benefits of Outdoor Learning, considerations when developing and launching an Outdoor Learning program, Case Studies from Victorian Primary schools, sample letter to families and how to discuss Outdoor Learning with fellow colleagues in addition to 100+ curriculum aligned activities.
