Abstract [en]

This paper presents a conceptualisation of over ten years practical experience of working with “outdoor component” in science teacher education in Umea (Sweden). The Activity Theory (AT) has been used to provide theoretical ground for reflection on educational work and students’ activities in the outdoor context. Our experience of exploring pedagogical potential of outdoor context in teaching physics for prospective primary and secondary school teachers is also illustrated by concrete examples from different courses and student examination papers. Evidence provided by this study and students research shows great potential of outdoor learning environment but also reveals issues related to motivators and pedagogical complexity of outdoor teaching demanding purposeful development of teacher competence and great deal of private interest.
