About this Unit
This unit examines the concepts of administration and managerial aspects of Outdoor Recreation and Outdoor Education. This is undertaken through addressing elements of administration, group dynamics, land use management, environmental impact and risk evaluation as they relate to Outdoor Recreation Management. Knowledge, technical skills and values of a range of fieldwork activities with an emphasis on repelling is developed by the student. The emphasis is on the use of scholarly means to achieve practical ends, and students will be evaluated on their ability to conduct their own investigation into topics and to apply the outcome in a safe and practical manner. Completion of an approved Remote Area First Aid certificate is required of students at their own expense and in their own time. The unit addresses the National Outdoor Recreation Competency Standards. Field work is an integral component of the unit and is conducted in block, flexible time periods on weekends and mid session breaks. The field work is completed at the students own expense.
