Part of the International Explorations in Outdoor and Environmental Education book series (IEOEE)


This book is a story about my attempts to construct outdoor environmental education (OEE) pedagogies and experiences that are place-responsive; that is, to create educative experiences that are about the natural~cultural history of the Australian places in which they occur. The project has been many years in progress and this book is only one re/presentation of a larger and ongoing project. Curriculum as I conceptualise and understand it is ongoing, lived, enacted, dynamic and responsive to changing circumstances of individuals and environments within which they live and work. Curriculum, for me, is always already becoming.
