Concerning the method used in the training, Outward Bound offers course participants the opportunity to actively explore themselves and their relations with others. At the heart of this process is ‘experiential education’ or learning by doing. At Outward Bound, as in our daily lives, changes in behavior and in understanding occur as a result of the practical experience of coping with real-life situations or problems. This is a learning process which engages the whole of the learner’s person - intellectually, emotionally, as well as physically. Our outdoor activities are unique and exciting. But we believe that it's not enough to merely be active together as a group: in order for real learning to take place, action needs to be grounded in reflection. We don’t do any outdoor activities just for the 'kick', reflections are channeled back into action. The experiential learning cycle we use during the whole training is based on plan-do-review.
For theoretical inputs we use two methods: the inductive and the deductive way. In some cases theoretical models are presented first and the experiences are reviewed with the help of these models, in other cases models are deducted from the experience itself.
