About the Event

This workshop is aimed at those teaching and leading others. I'm really keen that we all feel equipped to raise awareness and improve knowledge about the upland environment when we're training mountain leaders or just taking groups out into the hills.

On this workshop we’ll take a look at some of the preparatory work you might do before heading out, we’ll look at useful resources and games, we’ll test some of these in the fields, we’ll use books and apps to make identifications. We’ll improve our observational skills and develop some stories to tell. We will study some of the detail to be found, but will always be mindful of the bigger picture, we’ll consider how land use has changed, is changing, how it might changing the future and how this may affect our upland landscapes. We’ll talk about sheep farming, deer management and rewilding. We conside what is merely 'nice to know' and what is 'need to know'.

As well as looking at teaching methods, it is also important that you develop your own learning strategies to put yourself in the best position to inspire those you train and those you lead. This workshop is eligible for one CPD point for AMI, MTA or BAIML.
