Workshop activity[edit]

  1. Present and discuss notion of life effectiveness - handout - for more info, see http://wilderdom.com/leq
    1. Related concepts: Practical intelligence, self-concept etc.
    2. Definitions of generic life effectiveness skills
    3. Describe the eight life effectiveness (LEQ-H) dimensions
  2. Present and discuss outdoor education results from http://wilderdom.com/phd
  3. Highlight the general trend of a small drop between pre-program and first day (due to situational threat), the substantial increase during the program (probably inflated by post-group euphoria at program end), and the partial loss of gains during the follow-up period (typical of interventions). Of potential concern is that the 1st day to last day snapshot (typical of many evaluations) may over-estimate the amount of change during the program due to the initial depression and end-of-program euphoria. Thus, longitudinal research with a control group is preferable.
