Goals of the JOEE

The uniqueness of the JOEE is its ability to meet the needs of a wide cross section of readers, whether they be classroom teachers, academics, or practitioners in the field. The JOEE attempts to provide clear links between theory, research, and practice.

education practices and theories;

practices of teachers and practitioners, as well as researchers;
d) provide a forum in which outdoor and environmental education professionals
from all settings can exchange and discuss ideas and practices relevant to their
e) keep readers abreast of current outdoor and environmental education research.
