Revisioning School Camps PLD

 This superb PLD uses a model of Teacher as Inquiry to re-envisage and actualise school camps. It draws on a teaching and learning resource called Revisioning School Camps to support teachers in the development of localised, place-responsive and student-centred school camp programmes.
