Hyderabad: Outlife - a specialist outbound training using experiential education methodology - is hosting a five-day Learning Expedition 'Nature our Teacher', for students in the age group of 10 to 15 years and educators, from December 20 to 24.
The expedition facilitated by Diyanat Ali, Founder, GHAC & Outlife and team of experts from Outlife Experiential Education, will enable the participants to understand how nature adapts, the different species there, their habitat, behaviour and the enormous ability to adapt and survive in the ever-changing scenario.
Nature has immense capacity to adapt and survive. It is this innate ability, which an experiential program like this can inculcate in the kids at an young age, so when they have challenges on hand, they know where to seek inspiration, ideas and solutions and innovate and invent to take on them head on, says Diyanat Ali.
'Nature our Teacher' enables participants to explore, observe, reflect on nature, draw inferences and create meaningful education from their experiences.
The program involves:
1. Skill Building
The first Day focuses on building skills which children will use during the final challenge. The idea is to prepare the crew for the final challenge of the expedition. This will include observation skills. making inferences, using tools and field books for research.
2. Working in Crews
Participants explore and navigate in small crews. The idea is to help them learn how to build on each other's strengths and create a synergy in the group. They need to experience the power of diversity and inclusivity – and how it dramatically increases the richness of ideas, ability to solve problems and capacity to act in crew.
3. Final Challenge
Expedition will include one big challenge of creating a book of their learnings. These challenges push crewmembers to find strength that they did not know they had. During the final challenge, the leadership is real and the success is theirs to keep.
4. Reflections and Knowledge Sharing
Solitude, reflection and silence replenish our energies and open our minds. It is during the reflection that learners make connections between what they experienced during the expedition and the previous knowledge. It is time for constructing new understanding and knowledge, and most importantly, to rediscover and reinvent the Self.
