Introduction to the theory and practice of outdoor leadership

Outdoor Leadership

Outdoor Leadership, 2nd Edition is the definitive text for developing student leadership in outdoor and adventure settings.

This introductory-level text is the ideal resource for college and university courses related to outdoor leadership. It also identifies the eight core competencies essential for students to become effective outdoor leaders.

The guide’s primary goal is to find a balance between the theory and practice of outdoor leadership. The authors have tried to achieve this in many ways. Firstly, the book introduces students to a wide variety of concepts that are integral to working in the field. Secondly, each chapter begins with a story to help bring each theory to life. Plus, there’s also chapters featuring learning activities and exercises.

Updated for a second edition, it contains a number of new features. These include:

  • Expert advice and perspectives from new author Marni Goldenberg
  • New chapter on programme assessment
  • An increased emphasis on international perspectives
  • A stronger focus on outdoor leadership in the area of ecotourism
  • Revisions to address critical issues in the evolving field of outdoor and adventure leadership
  • Finally, there’s new ancillaries, including an instructor guide (which includes learning and portfolio activities for each chapter, as well as other new learning experiences), a test package and a presentation package.

Outdoor Leadership, 2nd Edition is available to buy from priced at £48.99/€58.50 (or for HK Rewards Members £39.19/€46.80).
