Hi, I am wondering if anyone has thoughts/expertise around "wilding" the business curriculum and spending more times with the students outdoors. If so, to what end? What benefit would it bring? And how could it be done? Have you or would you teach part of your classes outdoors? Is there a step beyond those activities that first come to mind (e.g. a rope course to develop team work, time in nature as part of reflection)--not that those don't also have value?

With covid, there is so much talk about shifting to the outdoors in the K-12 environment. Is there any conversation around this in post-secondary education, and should there be?

Thanks so much for your input! We are discussing this at my institution. Amy
