Adventure-Based Learning: Research, Literature, Resources and Information. - Download this document for free, or read online. Document in PDF available to download.

This list of resources on adventure-based learning techniques is presented for two reasons. In today's educational systems, programs must produce measurable results to meet mandated standards and goals. It is hoped that these resources will help programs obtain academic credibility for utilizing adventure-based activities. Secondly, they are presented in the interest of sharing best practices, increasing the knowledge base, and generally familiarizing both faculty and administration about adventure and experience-based learning. A section titled "Basic Training" is presented first, containing six resources that are recommended for those who don't have the time or resources to manage the entire list. A section on periodical and journal articles contains 44 entries. Eight websites are listed. The final section, on books, manuals, texts, and guides, has 15 entries. Some entries are annotated, most are not. (TD)
