I have been become increasingly aware of the most trendy management buzzwords starting to creep into Outdoor Education. I’m not sure if this is the educator trying to look clever/impress others or whether they have simply forgotten what attracted them to the outdoors in the first place!
I read an Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL) journal recently which presented an alternative set of words that were so simple and yet so strong that it made me think about the words that I use. It’s too soon to decide what impact these words are having on my delivery but I feel that I have awoken from a slumber and can see the natural world clearly once again. Not a bad feeling when all I did was to change the words that I use.
