– Outdoor Education – Authentic Learning in the Context of Urban and Rural Landscape

Anders Szczepanski (Linköping University)

The epistemological and methodological views of Outdoor Education will be scrutinized and linked to an ideological/historical perspective, in which man’s relation to the physical environment is described.
