A research project
This three year research project seeks to uncover new ways of valuing outdoor education, and will identify the potential for these specific learning experiences to purposefully enhance proenvironmental behaviours in young people.
A theory of change, quite simply, is the thinking (theory) behind the change your programme or service wants to achieve. It makes very clear the rationale which your work is based upon. It’s also been called a ‘roadmap’ for all to see and understand and, in this sense, needs to be logical.
IOL is delighted to be part of a Research Team who have just been awarded funding from the MARCH Network to assist in this research project. The MARCH Network is one of 8 national networks funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as part of the 2018 Cross-Council Mental Health Plus call to further research into mental health.

I find that metaphors from the outdoors help me when I am attempting to conceptualise understanding of Outdoor Learning, in this case residential outdoor learning.
Approaches to Research and Evaluation for Outdoor Practitioners
facilitated by Heather Prince and Chris Loynes
This free workshop will help outdoor practitioners to develop knowledge and skills to evaluate their practice. It will allow attendees to focus on their own small-scale contexts such as those in a single organisation or group of organisations engaged in similar practices, and to consider how they might generate evidence of impact and outcomes for staff, participants, trustees and funders.
