The Power of Story Telling in Outdoor Education

I love the power of stories, they help paint a mental picture, they  and provide metaphors that help everybody create meaning.  Stories have been told since the beginning of human history and help us to share culture, wisdom and entertainment.

Hear some great stories, learn when to use them. Develop your own stories and learn some structures and techniques to create awesome, memorable tales.


Mark is a a lifelong learner and enjoys helping people of all ages build connections with the outdoors. His career as a primary school teacher began in Brisbane. He combines his loves of learning outside the classroom and teaching young people by completing his formal Outdoor Education qualifications at Griffith University, Queensland.

Mark enjoys the challenge of applying learning from other disciplines to Outdoor Education. He has been heavily influenced by trends towards more adventure in learning and student directed reviewing.

Outdoor Education has the power to help people make genuine changes in their attitudes, behaviour and beliefs and this is a great motivator of His.
