Research in Outdoor Education


The purpose of this study was to describe the perceptions and meanings of the lived experiences of participants of the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation/Education (CORE) program at Indiana University. It is hoped that the information provided in this study will help to meet the call for methodological pluralism and allow program developers and the research community at large to gain a more descriptive and thorough account of the outdoor leadership development experiences of program participants, with the ultimate goal of improving outdoor leadership programs.
