I have taken a lot of different items from each video and module from this course, including the first aid, weather, risk management, and connecting with nature modules. I was able to create lessons and slideshows in this course that I can not only use in my professional life as a teacher, but also in my personal life. Teaching the items that I researched in this class will help me in my personal life as I will be able to learn a lot from the students I teach and then apply that to my family life. The most valuable lesson that I learned is to make sure to reflect on past experiences and be willing to learn new things so that you can make sure you are making responsible decisions in the backcountry. I found that through the stories in the videos and from stories that were shared through others in reflections that I will be more competent in any adventures that I choose.

I loved being able to have a year to complete this course. I started in July, but once school and officiating field hockey started, I had to stop until my holiday break in December.

I really enjoyed the content of this course. I want to be a much more avid outdoorsman than I currently am. A lot of the topics presented in this course gave me confidence that I didn't have before. From types of gear to consider, to reading moon phases and forecasting potential weather concerns, I'm really excited to put some of these things into practice this summer while camping and hiking with my family. Passing some of these lessons onto my students will hopefully give them confidence as well when they find themselves recreating and exercising in the outdoors without the "requirement" of a high school physical education class. I really liked the choice options that were available instead of a standard presentation. That gave me an opportunity to change it up a bit and not have to keep coming up with ways to present the information in a Google Slideshow.
