ODL 225 Universal Adventure Programming 4cr

"Universal Adventure Programming" has traditionally been defined as "accessible" adventure programming on a programmatic, environmental, leadership, legal, and equipment modification level for people with and without disabilities. This course seeks to expand that definition to assist students in gaining the knowledge, understanding, and abilities to provide quality adventure programming in relation to staff and clientele's race, class, gender, and ability - thereby seeking to create socially just outdoor education opportunities for all. By truly understanding ourselves, our clients, and the environment within which we work, we can provide quality inclusive programming for all. Students will gain knowledge and experience in "universal adventure programming" through field experiences, guest speakers, experiential class sessions, readings, reflective writing, and active leadership opportunities.
