Langseth, Tommy – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2012
Surfing is getting increasingly popular in Norway as well as other countries that have a coastline with rideable waves.

Collins, Loel; Collins, Dave – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2012
As a comparatively recent development, the adventure-sports coach struggles for a clear and distinct identity.

Indeed, although the fields of adventure/outdoor education and leadership are comparatively well researched,…

Sandseter, Ellen Beate Hansen; Little, Helen; Wyver, Shirley – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2012
In this paper, we contrast the early childhood education and care aims and curriculum in Norway and Australia and the theoretical underpinnings of Norwegian and Australian pedagogy in an attempt to partially explain the different approaches to (risky) outdoor play in these two countries. We argue that Norwegian pedagogical approaches may allow…

Bentsen, Peter; Jensen, Frank Sondergaard – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2012
An increasing number of Danish teachers have started introducing school-based outdoor learning as a weekly or biweekly "outdoor school" day for school children--often called "udeskole" in Danish.

Many of the principles and practices that have influenced outdoor education in Aotearoa New Zealand find their genesis in the United Kingdom and North America.

They are the pre-activity brief, the mid-activity visit…

Norris, Julian – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2011
Rites of passage models, drawing from ethnographic descriptions of ritualized transition, are widespread in adventure therapy programmes. However, critical literature suggests that: (a) contemporary rites of passage models derive from a selective and sometimes misleading use of ethnographic materials, and (b) the appropriation of initiatory…

This paper theoretically examines the interplay between cognition and bodily involvement in relation to nature-based therapy and proposes implications for practice.

The terms "wilderness" and "adventure" are unpacked and attention is drawn to the risks of working uncritically with these concepts. Illustrations of alternative understandings of…

Cohn, Itamar – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2011
In this paper the human-nature relationship is recognized as a major field of interest and a platform of ideas linked with it is explored. A "new" source to inform an alternative paradigm for outdoor education is proposed; it is millennia old, has roots all over the globe and is a living, breathing, and evolving tradition--indigenous ways. While…
