Summary This session will report on findings of a collaborative action research project focussing on student recordings of personal reflections on connections with place. The study involves students in a unit of a Graduate Certificate of Outdoor and Environmental Education course spending time (at least four separate experiences) in a place of their choosing. Each experience is framed with a different but particular purpose in mind and students record their feelings/learnings using a variety of forms. In this workshop we will summarise student findings on how they engaged with ‘their’ place and levels of connections that were made. We will explore different ways of connecting with nature and strategies for improving connections through journeying in outdoor programs.
