Zmudy, Mark H.; Curtner-Smith, Matthew D.; Steffen, Jeff – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2009

Barnfield, Daniel; Humberstone, Barbara – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2008
Outdoor education has been shaped historically and culturally by many influences. Physically challenging activities out of doors have been appropriated by a number of traditions.

Rea, Tony – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2008
Powerful, dominant discourses surrounding neo-Hahnian theory (as discussed by Brookes in 2003) and effectiveness (as discussed by Hargreaves and Fullan in 1998, for example) have influenced both practice and research in outdoor adventure education. This has led to a concentration of research that focuses on the impact of outdoor programmes. It has…

Dickson, Tracey J. – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2008
Facilitating the reflection upon outdoor and adventure experiences is a common practice for many leaders and instructors.
