Risky Learning: the Significance of Practical Wisdom in Outdoor Learning

Practical wisdom is positioned as dynamic decision making developed through practice. Through reflection and dialogue, participants are asked to recall earned practical wisdom from their own learning experiences and how they may invite their learners, through experiential relationships in local outdoor contexts, into dynamic decision making.
