Teaching about the environment on courses

Participants will receive an email with the link and access details in advance of the session.

Topics to be covered and discussed:

This session will explore ways of introducing environmental topics to candidates on Mountain Training courses. It can be can daunting to have your trainer pointing out wild flowers, chatting about lichens and geology, the advice will be that you need to be able to do this too. An assessor will certainly expect some engagement in issues concerning the environment and this will include some knowledge of species.

So, how can we better train candidates to have realistic targets for themselves and develop appropriate environmental knowledge to share with their groups? We will discuss  the ‘need to know’ issues and common ‘need to know’ species. We’ll dance around topics that might be just ‘nice to know’. We take a look at different ways of introducing information, and working with information other than just telling people things and hoping some of it sticks!

Equipment

Access to the session through Zoom software via laptop/tablet or phone.
