The Benefits of Outdoor Learning

JANUARY 27, 2022 -- Congratulations to Lori Milligan, Program Manager of Outdoor Environmental Education for Regina Public Schools, who was involved in having an article published in Leaders & Learners Winter 2021-2022.

The article, entitled “Are You In or Are You Out? Reimaging Education Without Doors,” is about the benefits of outdoor learning and what school divisions across Canada are doing, especially since the pandemic.

“Regina Public Schools Outdoor Education Department has seen a large increase in teachers requesting out-of-city field trips. Three hundred and fifty teachers registered to take their classes to learn outdoors. These full-day trips are curriculum based and focused on critical place-based learning, which is then woven into what is being taught in the classroom.”
