Though much literature describes the value of experiential and place-based learning experiences for participants, we have found little comparable literature regarding the facilitator experience. This paper provides current and future facilitators of workshops, especially those that take place outdoors, our reflections and ideas as facilitators, including tips for success. Our findings reinforce the conclusion that experiential learning can be as beneficial and transformative for facilitators as for participants, and that what we encounter during workshops parallels what students may go through in our classrooms as they learn. We identify five clear themes from facilitator reflections and encourage readers to consider leading an outdoor experiential learning sessions.
