Adventure Learning at University of Idaho (AL@UI) is based in Moscow, Idaho and coordinated by Dr. Brant G. Miller , Dr. R. Justin Hougham and Karla Bradley Eitel.  AL@ represents the cutting edge of technology, education, and adventure.  AL@ seeks to deliver education at the speed of research through authentic partnerships with UI researchers for meaningful education and outreach experiences.  AL@UI welcomes teachers, students, communities, and researchers to participate in upcoming expeditions and generate ideas for future expeditions.  AL@UI would not be possible without support of the  McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS), the College of Education and the College of Natural Resources

Adventure Learning (AL) has impacted millions of students throughout the world. The archetype AL program, GoNorth!, found great success in connecting students, teachers, and experts to expedition team members while they traveled via dogsled in circumpolar arctic locales. AL@UI builds on the foundational work done at the University of Minnesota by proving the concept of the expanded AL framework that includes local places, issues, and associated authentic narratives. The Pacific Northwest affords stunning landscapes by which AL can be explored by students and teachers for transformation learning.

We need YOU to help us ask and answer the question: Where will you AL@?

We are encouraging students, teachers and University of Idaho researchers to answer this question through the AL@ approach to designing educational experiences.

Dane Hansen, a M.Ed student says, "Learning through adventure creates a more meaningful and whole learning that stays with you throughout life,” said Dane. “At the University of Idaho I am experiencing how the Adventure Learning approach can transform what is being done in K-12 education. And to me, that is incredibly exciting!"
