Value of Outdoor Learning Community of Practice

September 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

What is a Community of Practice?

 A group of professionals who share a concern or passion about a practice topic and who wish to learn how to improve this area of practice by communicating and collaborating with each other regularly over time. Communities of practice are examples of reflective practice and collaborative inquiry. (College of ECE’s CPL Resource, Communities of Practice August 2018)

In a community of practice, Early Learning Professionals come together to discuss, learn and strategize ways in which to better understand or advance a shared passion as a group and as individuals in daily practice.

Value of Outdoor Learning – Community of Practice

Children are natural explorers and the outdoor environment plays a very important role in the curriculum we provide in our Early Learning environments. The benefits of being outdoors and reconnecting with nature can offer both immediate and lifelong benefits to the children in our care. Join us for a community of practice on Outdoor Environments and learning. Educators will connect via zoom for knowledge sharing and collaboration of ideas and resources, as well as reflect on challenges we may be dealing with in regards to our outdoor learning space.

Some questions to think about for our first session:

  • How does your present outdoor environment support children’s learning?
  • Do you feel your outdoor environment is welcoming and inviting to the children.
