Ebert, Philip A. – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
In this article, I explore a Bayesian approach to avalanche decision-making. I motivate this perspective by highlighting a version of the base-rate fallacy and show that a similar pattern applies to decision-making in avalanche-terrain. I then draw out three theoretical lessons from adopting a Bayesian approach and discuss these lessons…

Reese, Ryan F.; Hadeed, Sabrina; Craig, Hannah; Beyer, Alia; Gosling, Marjorie – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
Wilderness Therapy (WT) programming has been criticized for underutilizing nature as an active co-facilitator in treatment.

The purpose of…

Zink, Robyn – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2010
The story of Chris McCandless, as told by Jon Krakauer, and more recently by Sean Penn, tells a familiar tale of going alone into the wilderness in search of the truth of oneself. Chris's story provides a parable to explore some of the motifs that inform contemporary outdoor education. In this paper I draw on the work of Michel Foucault and Judith…

Facilitating the reflection upon outdoor and adventure experiences is a common practice for many leaders and instructors.
