Research in Outdoor Education


This study examined the effect of a semester-long, outdoor leadership course upon the environmental beliefs and attitudes of participants. Embedded within this study is a three-week field expedition as part of the curriculum for the treatment group. Two research questions were examined. First, are there initial differences in demographic variables between the treatment and control group students? Second, after using the data generated. at the beginning of the semester from both groups as a covariate, are there differences in response to the statements contained in the modified NEP between the stated environmental beliefs of students in the treatment and control groups across time (mid-term and end of semester)?
