Sample text

Adventure educators who come from a more formal teaching or coaching background might find the ‘outcomes first’ approach comes naturally to them. However, in experiential education, there are concerns about using this approach. One concern is that we may become ‘obsessed’ by the outcomes and therefore too prescriptive in our subsequent facilitation. The danger here is that we may not read situations as they unfold and therefore fail to capitalise on significant events as they happen. Rather, the facilitator ends up simply telling participants what they got out of the experience in order for progress to be demonstrated quickly (and possibly falsely).
