Abstract

Outdoor adventure education (OAE) programs are fertile environments for teaching transferable skills that can benefit students in their day-to-day lives. This interdisciplinary research project draws on research from psychology, human resource development, education, and OAE programs to identify mechanisms affecting learning transfer. The mechanisms are organized according to Baldwin and Ford’s (1988) transfer construct input factors, and subsequently evaluated in order to determine their potential for use in OAE programming. The findings from this project will help OAE program designers and instructors facilitate experiences that benefit students beyond the outdoor context.
