At Outward Bound we know, first hand, the deep impact that teachers and educators have on their students.
In our Educator Professional Development Programs, we aim to bring the magic of the Outward Bound teaching and learning strategies to the teachers who are on the front lines in classrooms around the USA. We partner with educators – from public & independent secondary schools, colleges & universities, and community-serving nonprofits – to amplify students’ life-changing challenge and discovery experiences.
In partnership with NOAM Institute, Outward Bound created the Domains Of Thriving framework to emphasize four Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) growth categories of Courage, Belonging, Reflection and Physical Engagement that are essential for success. By incorporating this student-centered framework within their existing curricula and classroom management strategies, educators can further enrich their teaching practice.
