Research in Outdoor Education


This study was conducted to further our understanding of the impact an outdoor adventure education experience has on participants' personal and professional life. Outdoor adventure education follows an experiential philosophy of learning and takes place primarily through sensory involvement with the natural world (Priest and Gass, 1997). Ewert and McAvoy (2000) have mentioned that the transfer of benefits of adventure programs and their components to work and everyday life have often been neglected in research.
