Planning, Assessing and Evaluating in OAA
The teacher needs to have experience and an appropriate qualification to plan, assess and evaluate outdoor and adventurous activities. He needs to plan what kind of specific characteristic of the participants he wants to develop. This development of characteristics should be adjust to an activity which is appropriate, for example orienteering supports to develop team building or abseiling supports to develop self-confidence.
Assessing and evaluating in outdoor and adventurous activities seems to be complex. Learning outcomes varies and are hardly measurable. The teacher needs to be in contact with the participants. Participants should give constructive feedback. Writing down their experience could be a good way to help the teacher evaluating. Evaluating is an important part for the teacher developing ways and patterns to make OAA more efficient in terms of learning outcomes.
