The course is aimed at teachers working in early secondary education up to university entrance level. It may also be suitable for park wardens and others involved in public education outdoors. The course’s purpose is to introduce participants to the principles of outdoor teaching and give them practical skills in teaching elements of geology. The objective is to use experiential methods and problem solving along an environmental trail as starting points, and then tie the project to the trail as necessary.

Aðalsteinn Örn Snæþórsson, a staff member of the Northeast Iceland Nature Centre, and Sigrún Þórólfsdóttir, a teacher from Borgarhólsskóli School in the town of Húsavík, were responsible for the development and realisation of this project.
