Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the development of an Introductory Physics course in a Pedagogical University (KSPU) in Russia. Piotr Gal’perin’s (1902-1988) ideas that learning should begin with a profound orientation in the learning task and integrate students’ metacognitive reflections provide a theoretical ground for the course development. An outdoor context was used for inspiring and implementing the students’ self-directed projects. Evidence of the outcomes of different elements of the course implementation was collected through action research methodology. The results show that the students appreciate the possibility of influencing the learning process through dialog with the course teacher, and value doing independent planning and implementation of experimental activities in an outdoor environment.
