3003. Advanced Topics of Outdoor Leadership and Education.

This intensive, field-based course culminates with a two-week expedition in which students apply the leadership and teaching skills learned through lectures and labs during the semester. This is a student-designed and instructor-facilitated experience, in which students develop risk management plans, course itineraries and outdoor education lesson plans specific to a wilderness expedition, and assume direct leadership roles implementing their developed lesson plans. The course is designed for students who will work as outdoor guides and educators in the St. Lawrence University Outdoor Program and other professional organizations.
