‘Go outside and learn’/ Inside Out / Bring the outside world into your class and vice versa

In June 2015, I am leading a session at STLHE in Vancouver called Go outside and learn. Here is a link to the conference website description.  There is an associated handout for the session; see below.

In June, 2013, Alan Wright and I co-led a session by this name at the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education conference, held at Cape Breton University, Nova Scotia.

In November, 2013, I led a related session (via Internet) at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The material posted here is for everyone to use. Do you have something to add? Let me know.

Handouts you can modify for your own use:
