Organizational Culture And Outward Bound: Perspectives Of Instructors And Participants, Sophie M. Burns Jan 2018

Organizational Culture And Outward Bound: Perspectives Of Instructors And Participants, Sophie M. Burns

Scripps Senior Theses

Outward Bound stands out amongst the rest of the wilderness organizations not only for its time-honored contribution to the field of wilderness education, but for its fundamental process and theories which contribute to its success. Academic attention in the field of wilderness programs largely overlooks the role of organizational culture. To fill the gap in our knowledge, this study synthesizes the academic conversation on Outward Bound programs and integrates it with the most consistent findings about organizational culture. Interviewing the participants and instructors of a 72-day long Outward Bound course conducted in 2015 provides clear insight into the role of ...

Summer Camp Professionals’ Positive Psychology Certification Program, Kenneth Schainman Aug 2017

Summer Camp Professionals’ Positive Psychology Certification Program, Kenneth Schainman

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

This Capstone provides the rationale and preliminary curriculum for a Summer Camp Professionals’ Positive Psychology Certification Program. One hundred and fifty years before the advent of positive psychology, summer camps were designed to teach children the art of flourishing (Paris, 2008). During that time, camps have organically developed techniques to foster positive emotion, engagement, positive relationships, meaning and accomplishment –fundamental building blocks of Martin Seligman’s (2011) PERMA model of wellbeing. As effective as camps are at promoting flourishing, however, they can become even more so by incorporating new insights and techniques from the field of positive psychology. The Camp ...


Developing A Curriculum Framework For Field Studies Using Experiential And Environmental Educational Theory, Nicole Gautier May 2017

Developing A Curriculum Framework For Field Studies Using Experiential And Environmental Educational Theory, Nicole Gautier

SMTC Plan B Papers

Abstract

Experiential and environmental education are educational philosophies with significant overlap. Experiential and environmental education are mutually supportive, and linked through five key components, (a) direct experience, (b) place, (c) learning community, (d) critical investigations, and (e) purposeful outcomes. A literature review demonstrated shared purpose and similar pedagogies. These similarities were used to define experiential environmental education. Field studies programs, educational expeditions defined by direct experience and investigations of place, are an effective way to put experiential environmental education theory in to practice. Curriculum frameworks are an educational tool used to develop specific curricula aligned with theoretical objectives. The key ...
