The logistics of higher education often prevent outdoors learning being a consideration. Yet the outdoors provides a nuanced and complex learning environment which can be extremely valuable. This presentation will describe the preparations for a field trip organised for postgraduate students on a service risk and resilience course at Adam Smith Business School. Although the trip was cancelled due to covid-19, we will share our thoughts and plans leading up to the event. We will discuss the specific benefits of conducting risk assessments in an outdoors environment and how this differs from teaching risk in a classroom. Attendees will have the opportunity to consider how they might adapt this approach for their own teaching and there will be time for questions and discussion.
