OES101 Foundations of Outdoor Environmental Studies


In this course you’ll learn about the theoretical frameworks used in outdoor environmental studies with a strong focus on the ideas and cultural beliefs that have shaped the way Australians perceive and interact with natural environments. Particular attention is given to the way traditional Western/European and Indigenous belief systems shape human-to-nature relationships and environmental sustainability. Field trips will help you to explore how worldviews shape the ways in which different groups respond to natural environments through participation, observation and evaluation.
You'll need to be aware of the physical components and location requirements of the course. If you have a disability, medical condition or any concerns that may affect your potential participation in some of the practical components of the course, you are invited to discuss your options with the course coordinator.
