Nature Education

In many ways, nature is our greatest teacher.

This course will equip participants with knowledge of the biodiversity, ecology and the natural environment of Singapore. It will enable participants to use nature to create activities for others, and educate on integrating Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Students will also learn to incorporate appropriate attitudes and values toward nature trips, as well as how to plan risk assessment and handle safety management. 

Both an experiential session in the outdoor classroom and an indoor session will be included.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the significance and principles of using nature as an educator.
  • Increase their knowledge of sustainable living by learning from nature.
  • Develop and plan safe outdoor nature activities and fieldtrips.
  • Conduct impactful activities in natural environments for environmental education and SEL.
