Abstract

Outdoor learning aims to support the raising of standards by bringing researchers and practitioners closer together. A number of strategies have proved effective including the development of strong networks between researchers and practitioners, local action research hubs, participative enquiry and the development of practitioner researchers. Two recent projects in schools have been successful at using action research approaches to support professional development leading to increased take up and raised standards of their respective pedagogies. Regional Outdoor Learning research hubs have been designed and piloted. The impact that research conducted in these ways is evaluated to inform future practice.
