Teaching in the Dirt: Designing Outdoor Classrooms is my step-by-step course where I will teach you the in’s and out’s of designing your outdoor learning spaces so you can get started with transforming your outdoor learning spaces, and reconnecting children with nature, and growing your Outdoor Classroom.
This is the class I wish I had when I created my first Children’s Garden and Outdoor Classroom.
Teaching in the Dirt: Designing Outdoor Classrooms is a self-paced e-course designed to support teachers and parents through the process of transforming thoughtful outdoor learning spaces for children. In this course, we will explore the importance of outdoor learning, design elements and sustainability of your outdoor classroom. We will also discuss intentional teaching and playful learning, along with hands-on-minds-on learning.

As a community, we will have the opportunity to look at the evolution of each other’s outdoor learning spaces.
