Online Course Wilderness – Nature
Skills & Knowledge

12 Months – 24 Lessons
January – December 2024

This course is developed and hosted by Voshaar Outdoor & Education (NL) and Mahikan Trails (CA)

The start is in January and the last lesson in December. Each month we cover one or several topics. Sometimes this is an instructional video and sometimes an online presentation (Zoom). Is this another online course like any other? No! At least once a month there will be a zoom meeting with the subject’s host. During this meeting, the subject can be discussed in more detail and there is room for questions and discussion. When the subject is done live at Zoom, this will follow immediately. With an instructional video, this meeting will follow about one or two weeks later. You will then have been able to practice and train for at least a week and you may have questions and comments as a result of ’trying it out at Home’.
Multiple lessons will be supported by PDF documents and other learning resources. Participants also get access to an online learning environment.
The live sessions and zoom meetings will normally be on Friday and/or Saturday evenings, between 7pm and 10pm CET. At those times, participants from the USA and Canada can also join. With a debriefing, the meeting will last about an hour, with a zoom presentation, including discussion, about 2 hours. Four times a year there is also a Zoom ‘Light my Fire’ session. Where several or sometimes even all Hosts will be present.

The language of instruction is English during the meetings. Some instructional videos will be available in English AND Dutch.

Missed a lesson? No problem! All zoom meetings are recorded and remain available for atleast 4 weeks. The instructional videos also remain available for at least 4 weeks, and some videos even longer.
